Covid-19 Information

Main symptoms

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

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

What to do if you have symptoms

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

  1. Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
  2. Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.

Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.

 

What Will Happen if We Have a Confirmed Positive Case of Covid-19

 

  • When a child or a member of staff tests positive it is essential that school is informed immediately.
  • You will not be legally required to self-isolate if you test positive for COVID-19. Stay at home if you can and avoid contact with other people.

  • You will not have to take daily tests or be legally required to self-isolate following contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

  • If you have any questions please do not hesitate but make contact with the school.
