COVID-19

Symptoms of COVID-19

Please ensure that you read the following NHS online guidance about:

Self-isolation impacts the child and households members (including parents/carers and siblings), so please read it carefully! Remember, if a child or adult has a new continuous cough, a high temperature, or loss of taste or smell, then the child/adult as well as their household must self-isolate immediately. Self-isolation lasts at least 10 days for the person with symptoms. For those in the household (including siblings) without symptoms, they must self-isolate for 14 days; if during those 14 days they develop symptoms, they must self-isolate for at least 10 days from that point. The links above clarify how these timings change if a positive or negative test result is received.

Please do not send a child in if they are showing symptoms. If they are showing symptoms, keep them and the household at home, self-isolate, and try to get a test. Keep the school updated via email/phone!

People can also order home test kits to be sent directly to them. To book an appointment or order a home kit, please visit:

This diagram from the BBC News is helpful too.

Testing your child

Key Information

NHS COVID-19 App 

 On 24 September 2020, NHS Test and Trace launched the NHS COVID-19 app to help control the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). It will do this by alerting people who may have been exposed to infection so that they can take action.   

If you are invited into the school building for any reason you will therefore need to scan our venue’s QR code which is displayed on the front door of the main entrance and another outside the office.
