COVID-19 Information for Parents/Carers

We are following the current NHS guidelines in school should there be any children that develop symptoms of Coronavirus, these can be found via this link https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/coronavirus-in-children/.

 

What to do if your child has symptoms:

If your child has any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

 

  • Get a test to check if they have coronavirus as soon as possible.
  • Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get the test result – only leave your home to have a test.
  • Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get the result.

 

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

 

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

 

Important

Get advice from NHS 111 if you're worried about your child or not sure what to do.  The school will be unable to offer advice on symptoms over the phone, please use the 111 service.

For children aged 5 or over – use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service.

For children under 5 – call 111.

 

If your child IS NOT displaying any of these symptoms, and is feeling well, they can attend school. 

 

If your child IS NOT displaying any of these symptoms, but is feeling unwell from other causes, you must decide if they are well enough to attend school.

 

If your child IS displaying any of the symptoms, please follow the government instruction to have them tested.

 

If a child develops symptoms whilst at school they will be isolated until they can be collected and their siblings will also be sent home.

 

If your child has a POSITIVE test please inform the school immediately so we can follow our guidance if any positive case is identified.
