Covid-19 Update

Dear Parents and Carers,

If your child is feeling unwell and has at least one of the main coronavirus symptoms, you must book a coronavirus test and stay at home. The main symptoms are:

  •  a high temperature 
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

Further information on these symptoms can be found at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/ 

If your child is displaying these symptoms, you must book a test and your child must not return to school unless they receive a negative result. You can apply for a test at https://self-referral.test-for-coronavirus.service.gov.uk/antigen/name Please inform the school that a test is being carried out.

If your child receives a negative test result, and your child feels well, they can return to school.

If your child receives a positive test result, you must inform the school straight away and your child must isolate for 10 days. The rest of the household must isolate for at least 14 days.

If anyone in the household has received a positive test result, your child/ren should not attend school for 14 days and you must inform school immediately.

Thank you for your support
