School and Covid 19

Keeping everyone in school safe

Parents & carers should not send their child to school if they have symptoms indicating Covid-19.

NHS England define symptoms as:

1.   Fever or high temperature (including ‘hot to touch’)

2.   New, persistent cough

3.   Loss or change in taste or smell

Please also be mindful of the other common symptoms of Covid and carry out LFD tests if you have them and suspect your child might have Covid.

The most common symptoms for children are identified as:

  • Shortness of breath

  • Feeling tired or exhausted

  • an aching body

  • loss of appetite

  • Blocked or runny nose

  • Headache

  • Sneezing

  • Sore throat

  • diarrhoea

  • feeling sick or being sick

Parents must report through to AJ in the usual way, by ringing school before 9.00am on the first day of absence.


Arrangements for children who become unwell

If pupils become unwell in school with symptoms of Covid-19, then they will be isolated in school until taken home by a parent or carer.


We must inform Public Health England of any positive test outcomes. Public Health England then advise the school on appropriate next steps to manage risk.
