Please read the information below which provides details of what to do if your child is unwell or show symptoms of COVID19.

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms:

 a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need        to measure your temperature)

 a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more              coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

 a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or      taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

If your child is feeling unwell with other symptoms – but not the COVID-19 ones above, you should act in the way you would have before the pandemic.

 If they are too unwell to be in school or our guidance says they shouldn’t (e.g. diarrhoea and          vomiting), please keep them off school and let us know why. They do not need to be tested and      there is no need for anyone else in the household to self-isolate unless they later develop                COVID19 symptoms.

 If they are well enough to attend (e.g. they have a mild cold, sore throat or headache but none        of the COVID-19 symptoms), you can send them to school

However, if you or your child do have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

 The symptomatic person must stay at home and not have visitors until they get a test result.            They must only leave home to have a test. The whole household must also stay at home.

 Please inform the school.

 Get a test to check if you / they have coronavirus as soon as possible. NB. There is no need for        the whole household to have a test – only those who are symptomatic should have one.

After the test result comes back:

 If the test is positive, the person who had the test must self-isolate for 10 days from when the        symptoms started. If it is negative, they can return to work / school etc.

 If the test is positive, anyone living with the person who had the test must self-isolate for 14            days from when the symptoms started. If it is negative, they can return to work / school etc.

 There is no need to get another test after the isolation period.
