Dear Parents and Carers,
Since the beginning of term, all schools have been receiving a lot of calls and questions from parents about the health of their children.
With children starting to mix together again, it is likely that they are going to get seasonal colds and coughs but not all illnesses mean they must stay off school or self-isolate.
We want to remind you that COVID-19 symptoms are a high temperature (hot to touch on the back or chest), a new continuous cough (continuous cough is coughing consistently for a while and not just every now and again), a loss of or change to your taste or smell.
More detail of the symptoms can be found: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/
We have put together the following document detailing the different types of illness and what action should be taken. We hope you find this useful.
Very best wishes.
