Automatically alert educational institutions if pupil test positive for Covid-19

Petition Details

I would like the Track and Trace process to be adapted to ensure a school, college or other educational institute are alerted directly in the event of a pupil testing positive.

Additional Information

It is possible for an infected student to go off sick, test positive and for the school not to know unless the parent alerts the school (which might not happen). This feels like a huge gap in the process that could easily be adapted by the track and trace team simply asking the pupil for their school name and then adding that as an additional contact.

This should help schools in understanding what is happening on site and will help provide a safer environment for both pupils and staff.
