If your child has a cough or temperature...

If your child has a cough or temperature they cannot come to school. If you get a covid test and this is negative, then your child may return to school even if they still have these symptoms. If you chose not to have your child tested, they CANNOT return to school until the symptoms have gone.

If your child or anyone in your household is awaiting the result of a covid test, we advise that children or siblings do not come to school until the test result is received. If it is negative, your child/ren may come to school

Our risk assessment, which is based upon Government guidelines, states that children who come to school exhibiting symptoms of covid (eg cough, temperature) will be sent home and you should seek a test.

If your child has sickness or diarrhoea, they must remain absent from school for 48 hours after the last bout of illness.

If your child is ill with a cold and has no cough or temperature, they may come to school if you feel that they are well enough.

If your child has any other illness eg chicken pox, scarlet fever please advise the office. They cannot come to school while infectious.

Thank you for your co-operation.
