Warn and Inform

This is the Warn and Inform Letter families will be sent if there is a confirmed positive Covid case in their class:

Dear Parent/Carer

COVID-19 information letter to parents and carers

This is to inform you that a case of confirmed COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has been reported in a person with links to Wardie Primary School.

All close contacts of the case who need to take specific actions have been identified, contacted and advised to follow the latest guidance on self-isolation and testing.

From August 9th 2021, these procedures have been updated for:

– adults who are fully vaccinated, who do not have symptoms and who have not tested positive; and

– children and young people aged under 18 who do not have symptoms and who have not tested positive.

Further information on the latest self-isolation requirements can be found on the NHS Inform website at: www.nhsinform.scot/illnesses-and-conditions/infections-and-poisoning/coronavirus-covid-19 or Translations (nhsinform.scot) for accessible, easy read formats or other languages.

What you need to do

There is no requirement for you or your child to self-isolate unless you are contacted by Test and Protect. This could happen if the contacts your child has had in the school environment or other settings – most likely social or overnight settings – are assessed as requiring targeted action.


Below are links/websites to help with home learning, if your child is isolating. Please feel free to do as much or as little as you wish.
