Current COVID guidance

We would just like to remind you again of the current guidelines we are following regarding illness –

If your child is displaying any COVID symptoms (a high temperature, a new continuous cough or loss of sense of smell/taste) they must self-isolate for 10 days, or until a negative test result has been received.  The rest of the household must also self-isolate for the same period.


We advise you to get your child tested as soon as possible (no later than 5 days) and if the test comes back negative they, and any siblings, may return to school immediately if they are well enough in general.  You can book a PCR test by calling 119 or by visiting

Rapid lateral flow tests should not be used on children if they have symptoms, as these are only to be used when no symptoms are present. You must either book a PCR test or contact school for a home testing kit.

If anyone in your household is displaying any of the above COVID symptoms please do not bring your children to school, as they must self-isolate for 10 days or until a negative test result is received by the person displaying symptoms.

If your child is not displaying any of the above symptoms and is well enough to cope with a full day of school, they can come in.  If your child feels at all unwell before coming to school, please do not send them in. Usually we encourage children to ‘see how it goes’ but in the current circumstances we cannot allow this.

If you have any questions, please contact the school office. Thank you for your support.
