Information about Covid-19

 

Should my child go to school?

If your child has ANY of the coronavirus symptoms below, please book them a test via the NHS website and do not send them into school.

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature, OR

  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours, OR

  • a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

If your child tests positive, they must self-isolate for 10 days; the rest of the family do not need to isolate if they are fully vaccinated or under 18 years 6 months. You may also be contacted by Test and Trace and told to isolate as a close contact.

If your child tests negative, they can stop self-isolating and return to school straight away.
