Should I send my child to school?
To help keep your child and fellow students safe, your child should not come to school if:

  • They are feeling unwell or are experiencing any coronavirus symptoms (If in doubt, book a test. If positive, isolate for 10 days from start of symptoms)
  • They have tested positive for coronavirus and are within the 10 day isolation period
  • They are sharing a household or support bubble with someone with symptoms (person with symptoms to be tested, if negative can return to usual activities; if positive, you must isolate for 14 days from last contact)
  • They have been advised by the NHS test and trace service to self-isolate or aware they are a close contact of someone who has tested positive for coronavirus (isolate for 14 days from last contact)
  • They have returned from abroad and government guidance states they need to quarantine for 14 days

If you are not sure if you child should or
should not go to school please call the school office.
