Covid 19 - Coronavirus
Public Health England Letter
if your child, or someone in your household has Coronavirus symptoms, please do not send your child to school and notify the school of this. The household (and anyone in your support bubble) must stay at home. Please engage with the Test and Trace process so that a test can be arranged, and notify school of the results.
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- 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 different to normal
