COVID-19 Symptoms / Test, Trace & Protect

It is particularly important that everyone is vigilant about this.

 

Under no circumstances should pupils attend school if they have any of the four identified COVID-19 symptoms (see below); or if they have tested positive to COVID-19 in the past 10 days. Nor should pupils attend school if they live in a household with someone who has symptoms of COVID-19; or has tested positive to COVID-19 in the past 10 days. 

 

The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

 

  • a high temperature - this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough - this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hrs
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste - this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste differently from normal

 

Most people with COVID-19 have one or more of these symptoms. 

 

What to do if you have any one of the main symptoms:

 

  • Get a COVID-19 test as soon as possible
  • Everyone in your household should then stay at home and isolate until you receive your test results - only leave home for the test
  • Anyone in your support bubble should also stay at home if you have been in contact with them since your symptoms started or during the previous 48 hours
  • Contact school to keep us informed
  • Email a copy of the test results to

 

Please read full details here: Self-isolation: stay at home guidance for households with possible coronavirus / Apply for a coronavirus test

 

Please note: Parents have a responsibility to keep the Headteacher informed of any changes to their condition or the advice given to them by their GP. They also have a responsibility to inform the school immediately of the result of the COVID-19 test (Negative/Positive) as this will support the Test, Trace, Protect programme.
