Following NHS and Public Health England advice (last updated 3rd Sept 2020)
Please do not send your child/children to school if they, or any person within their household or support bubble, have any of the main Coronavirus symptoms:
1. a high temperature
2. a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
3. a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
If your child/household/support bubble member has any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:
1. Get a test to check if they have coronavirus as soon as possible.
2. Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get the test result – only leave your home to have a test.
3. Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get the result. This includes siblings, even if they do not have symptoms themselves.
Positive test result
If the test is positive, you must all self-isolate immediately.
The person who has tested positive must self-isolate for 10 days from when their symptoms started.
Anyone they live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must self-isolate for 14 days from when you started self-isolating.
Negative test result
If the person tested has a negative result, the household and support bubble no longer needs to self-isolate unless:
1. Anyone else within the household/support bubble shows symptoms and is awaiting a test, or has a test and gets a positive result.
If your child has been tested and the result is negative, they can return to school unless:
2. They still feel unwell –stay at home until they are feeling better.
3. They have diarrhoea or are being sick - stay at home until 48 hours after they've stopped.
