Covid Guidance

The 3 key symptoms of Covid-19 are currently described as:

  • 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

 

Should your child, or any member of your household, display any of these symptoms it is vital that they do not attend school and that you book a test by visiting:
