With immediate effect, if you OR a member of your household (ie anyone that lives permanently in your house) has either of the following symptoms you should immediately self-isolate for the next 14 calendar days.
  • A fever (at least 38 degrees)

As per the Government announcement, Mascalls Academy is open as usual.  Further information will be provided tomorrow as to how you can best support your son/daughter’s education during a period of self-isolation.
We continue to follow the latest Government guidance and will update you should anything change.
