Covid-19 Help page

As all children come back to school we will start to see the normal colds and illnesses.  It is important though if your child shows any symptoms of Coronavirus that you do not send them to school.  

Coronavirus symptoms are:

  • a high temperature

  • a new, continuous cough

  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

Visit the NHS help page for advice https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Guidance states that if a member of your household displays symptoms your child will need to self-isolate.  If the member of your household tests negative and your child is not showing symptoms (they will need a test if they are) then your child can return to school.
