When should your child self-isolate?

Self isolation guide

Your child does not need to self-isolate if they are a close contact to someone in your household who has tested positive.  However, NHS advice is that close contacts of confirmed positive cases take a precautionary PCR test, and increase their frequency of LFT home test use.

Please do not send your child to school if they have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 10 days, or have any of the following symptoms:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

In they do demonstrate these symptoms, it is essential you book your child in for a PCR test by calling 119, or going online to https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test, .  Please do keep us updated too by contacting our  Attendance Officer on 01225 762686, and leaving us a message.
