What to do - Covid19 symptoms

Dear Parents/ Carers,


Please see the advice below on what to do if your child or anyone in your household or support bubble* develops coronavirus symptoms and the process we would like you to follow to keep children, staff and the local community safe. 


What do I do if my child wakes up with any of the following symptoms?


• Temperature (37.8 or above)

• New persistent/continuous cough

• Loss of taste/ sense of smell.


Inform school via Parent Mail or telephone what symptoms your child is displaying and that they and any siblings will not be in school.


Book a test at your local testing site (www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or call 111):

Covid-19 Drive-through Testing Site - London

Opening times: 8am-8pm

The results will be sent via text/ email within 24-48 hours.


Stay at home

Your child and anyone in the same household and support bubble must self-isolate until you receive the results.


The test is positive:

· Let the school know the result.

· Follow the guidance provided by government on self- isolation - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance


The test is negative and anyone else in the household/support bubble who has symptoms has tested negative:

· Inform the school of your result.

· If your child is feeling well they can come into school.

· If your child is not feeling well please keep them at home until they feel better.


If any other member of your household or support bubble develops symptoms:

· Book a test for the person(s) displaying symptoms.
