In the Name of ALLAH, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful. We praise ALLAH an abundant praise and we send salutations on HIS Honoured Messenger.
▪ Your child does not need a test if they have a runny nose, are sneezing or feeling unwell but do not have a temperature, cough or loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste because these are not normally symptoms of coronavirus.
▪ If you are unsure about whether to get a test, please check the official list of symptoms on the NHS website, which is reviewed regularly: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid 19/symptoms/
▪ Only the person with symptoms should get a test. You do not need to get a test for anyone else in the household unless they also have any of the three symptoms listed above. All members of the household need to self-isolate whilst waiting for the test result.
▪ If the person with symptoms’ test comes back positive, other members of their household should continue self-isolating for 14 days and only get a test if they develop coronavirus symptoms.
▪ If a pupil in a class or bubble tests positive for coronavirus, anyone who is advised to self-isolate does not require a test unless they subsequently develop symptoms.
No one else in the same class or bubble as the symptomatic person needs to take any action unless advised by the school. Schools have detailed guidance and access to a Department for Education and Public Health England helpline for advice and support.
Contacts of a person who has tested positive must follow the guidance carefully and in full, which means they must stay at home for 14 days. This is because it can take several days following contact with an infected person before an individual develops symptoms or the virus can be detected. Students should only book a test if they get symptoms.
The NHS has produced some guidance to help parents understand when their child can and cannot attend school which you may find useful: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthybody/is-my-child-too-ill-for-school/
It is vital for children’s learning and future opportunities that they are able to return to school and college. It is therefore vitally important that all we work together and do our bit to make this possible.
Al Akram Trust started as an idea. The idea was to promote Islam and Islamic education to a wider community to help bring about a sound understanding of the religion. The Trust has been working for many years and became established as a registered charity in 1999.
Members of the Trust having acquired Islamic education sought to promote this amongst others. Initially this consisted of their families and in particular their children for whom it took the shape of home education. From this followed a more formal effort of establishing a full time independent Islamic primary school in Derby. A centre was established which now houses such a school and serves other Al Akram activities such as adult education, events, seminars, lectures and support for Islamic effort in general.
In this website there are pages dealing with the varied activities of this Trust. As the website grows you will find written articles, talks, lectures, lessons and video material relating to all these activities. All this only if ALLAH Wills and only by the Grace of ALLAH, The Exalted, The Most High.
