Welcome to Marlcliffe Primary School

Ethos and Values

We are extremely proud of our school and committed to providing the very best possible education for all our children. This web site is designed to give you some information about our school but to find out more, please contact the school to arrange a visit or to ask any questions you may have.

We know that Marlcliffe is a happy school where children feel valued and where parents are welcomed as partners in their child’s education. Children lie at the heart of everything we do so we put them first in every decision. We look forward to working with you and your child so that Marlcliffe can continue to be the popular and very special place that it is today.

Please be vigilant as the number of positive COVID cases is rising rapidly.  The symptoms of the new variant are different to previous variants and children often start with tummy ache and generally feeling unwell.  We are working hard in school to reduce the risk however we thought you might find the following advice useful:

When is the best time to go for a PCR test if you are a contact of a case?

To help reduce transmission further we wanted to share when is the best time for individuals living in the household of a positive case to have a PCR test.

You may find this information helpful: 

  • It is important that anyone with symptoms goes for a PCR test straight away (even if you have had a negative PCR result recently).
  • We are aware that sometimes if there is a positive case (often following a positive LFD) all household members are going for a PCR test at the same time. This means that contacts are accessing a PCR test ‘too early’ for COVID to be detected.

We would advise the following:

    • If there is a positive result from an LFD the individual who has taken this LFD should go for a PCR test straight away.
    • Adults and secondary age pupils living in the same household should now start taking daily LFDs.

Anyone who has tested positive can LFD on day 6 and 7.  If both of these are negative then they can stop their isolation. 

From Tuesday 11th January anyone who is asymptomatic and tests positive on a LFD will no longer need a confirmatory PCR test.  The period of isolation should start from the date of the positive test.
