Covid, Flu or Cold?

Since returning to school, we are naturally experiencing some anxiety from parents as to whether their child has symptoms of Covid, whether to keep them at home or whether to try and book a Covid test.

Children’s immunity to common colds is always weaker after the summer holidays, but after such a long absence, this is more pronounced this year and the children seem to be already catching bugs.

Parents need to read the guidance and decide whether they think their child has the key indicators for Covid when they are at home. In school, if we think the child has symptoms, we will phone you to collect them immediately.  The following table will help you to compare the symptoms  – it’s just a guide from the internet so please treat is as such. I’ll also put a link to the website where it is from, as I found that it explained the symptoms of each quite clearly compared to other documents.
