Please see below local authority guidance on attendance, up dated 7th January 2022.
As per the guidance, in exceptional circumstances, the Headteacher will authorise absence where all parents and carers, in a household, have tested positive and have no support to ensure attendance of a child who remains negative. This will only be considered for children whose attendance is not of concern.
In addition, in exceptional circumstances, the Headteacher will authorise the absence where a pupil remains negative but is a close contact of someone living in the same household who has tested positive. The authorisation will be for the isolation period of the contact. Once again this is only possible where the child’s attendance is not of concern. During this period, it is recommended that the child take daily LFD tests for 7 days.
