What to do if…? Some frequently asked questions

With the huge amount of information and  changing guidelines, it is understandable that the school’s procedures around Covid-19 can seem confusing.

In the first instance, if a child shows any of the following symptoms, parents must keep them away from school and ensure that they are tested:

  • A new, continuous cough (where you cough a lot for more than an hour, or have three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours)
  • Fever – where your temperature is above 37.8C
  • Loss of smell or taste

In addition, the table below includes specific details about what to do in different situations for anyone else in their household (for instance, if a sibling shows symptoms.)


Please contact school if you have any questions.
