What are the symptoms of Covid-19?
What happens if I’m still not sure if they are Covid symptoms or not?
You should keep your child at home to monitor their temperature and their cough closely. You should take a Lateral Flow Test and organise a PCR test. You can do that easily and for free https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
But what if I don’t want my child to take a Covid test?
What happens if another child in my child’s class shows Covid symptoms? Will I know about it?
The school no longer has a responsibility for tracing contacts. We have decided that in the primary school we will inform you about positive cases as we would for headlice or chickpox. If a child in your child's class has a positive PCR or LFD test, then we will let you know by email. We are doing this because our primary pupils are not regularly testing as they are in secondary and because primary children are in close contact with other members of the class rather than mixing more widely. When we share this information we will not name the pupil, but alert the whole class there has been a positive test.
How do I get tested?
What happens if my child comes into contact with someone who has had a positive test outside of school?
