Coronavirus advice & Home Learning

What to do if your child is ill:


Please remember that if you or your child displays any of the main symptoms of coronavirus, you will need to book a PCR test either online or by calling 119. Lateral Flow tests are for asymptomatic testing only and are not suitable for this purpose.

If in doubt please speak to the school office who will do their best to help


Remember that anyone with a positive test result must self-isolate for 10 days. The rest of their household must self-isolate for 14 days to allow time for any symptoms to develop.

You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus!

  • Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:
  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
  • If you’re worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 – don’t go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
