Current Outbreak School Guidance

The Guidance for dealing with the Covid 19 Outbreaks in school has changed from Friday April 1st.  Your child should continue to attend school as normal if they remain well, however, all students and staff, regardless of year group, should remain vigilant regarding COVID-19.

Please see below for guidance:

What to do if your child develops symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) or tests positive for COVID-19

Symptoms of COVID-19, flu and common respiratory infections include:

  • continuous cough
  • high temperature, fever or chills
  • loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell
  • shortness of breath
  • unexplained tiredness, lack of energy
  • muscle aches or pains that are not due to exercise
  • not wanting to eat or not feeling hungry
  • headache that is unusual or longer lasting than usual
  • sore throat, stuffy or runny nose
  • diarrhoea, feeling sick or being sick

Children with mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, or slight cough, who are otherwise well, can continue to attend school.

Children who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people, where they can. They can return to school and resume normal activities when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough to attend.

All children with respiratory symptoms should be encouraged to cover their mouth and nose with a disposable tissue when coughing and/or sneezing and to wash their hands after using or disposing of tissues.

It can be difficult to know when to seek help if your child is unwell. If you are worried about your child, especially if they are aged under 2 years old, then you should seek medical help.

If your child has a positive COVID-19 test result they should try to stay at home and where possible avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day they took the test. The risk of passing the infection on to others from is much lower after 3 days, if they feel well and do not have a high temperature.

If your child usually attends school and lives with someone who has a positive COVID-19 test result, they should continue to attend as normal.
