Children should not attend school if they display any symptoms of the virus, including a high temperature, a continuous cough and or a loss of taste or smell. If a child is ill in school, he/she will be taken to an isolation zone and parents will be asked to collect them. They must have a Covid test and if negative, stay off school for two days after the symptoms have subsided. If positive, parents must inform the school immediately and we will take the necessary actions. (See details overleaf) 


Regarding ‘tummy bugs’, where a pupil displays gastrointestinal symptoms, such as vomiting or diarrhoea, they should not attend school until after their symptoms have resolved for at least two days (this means they should not have been sick or had diarrhoea for at least two days before they return.
