Covid-19: What to do

What do you do if your child, or a member of your family, has symptoms?

There has been a huge amount of information from the Government and also the media. The key change is that isolation is now 10 days, not 7 days, for a suspected or confirmed case.  Your child must take a PCR test as soon as possible.  If the results are negative, your child can return to school  The rest of the household do not need to isolate unless another member of the family also develops symptoms, in which case they must also then take a PCR test.  We will always take guidance from Public Health England if there is a confirmed case in school.  We will also notify our local authority.
