Advice to Parents and Carers

We are following national guidance for educational settings to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. We continue to be vigilant for any cases and will update you as soon as we are aware of any positive test results.

Providing your child is well they can continue to attend as normal.

What to do if your child develops any symptoms of COVID-19

The most common symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • A new continuous cough and/or
  • A consistent high temperature
  • A loss, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

If your child or anyone in your household develops any of the above symptoms, you can seek advice from NHS111 at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/coronavirus-in-children/

If your child develops any symptoms they should remain home until they feel better (and at least 48hrs after a period of vomiting).  If your child has tested positive, they should stay at home for at least 5 days.

There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill by following-

  • The guidance on social distancing
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often- for at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitiser if soap and water is unavailable
  • Wash your hands as soon as you return home
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze
  • Put tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
