Coronavirus / Covid-19 Updates and Information for September 2020
Coronavirus information from the Department of Health & Social Care
The best and fastest way for students or staff with symptoms of coronavirus to access a test is to visit a test site.
Appointments at test sites can be booked via:
This portal will give you a range of testing options available in your local area. These will usually be:
- Test centre - Booking a test at a test centre is likely to be the fastest way to get a test. Some test centres are mobile so move around every few days so you may notice addresses change. Some test centres have an option to have the test adminstered for you, but not all. The test centres are generally open seven days a week from 8am to 8pm.
- Home test kit - Staff, parents/carers and further education students can order a home test kit for themselves and up to three members of their household. These kits will be be posted to the address given, and are returned via a Royal Mail priority mailbox.
The symptoms of coronavirus are a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
For individuals who are symptomatic and/or test positive for coronavirus please follow the latest NHS guidance, which can be found at:

Welcome to the Old Sarum Primary School website.
On behalf of our staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to our happy community school.
We are dedicated to giving every child the highest standard of education possible.
‘Emotional Literacy’ is at the heart of our school’s ethos. We believe all children should feel happy, valued and secure. This will pave the way for their success as lifelong learners and ensure good standards of behaviour and achievement.
All members of the school share a real sense of unity and commitment to serve our growing community and welcome opportunities to work with other groups from within it. We are very proud of all we have achieved since opening in September 2011.
Mr John Jones BA (Hons) PGCE. MSc. NPQH
Old Sarum Primary School staff have a message for you all...
