If they are well enough and no longer have a temperature after 3 days they may return to school.We will continue to ensure spaces are well-ventilated and encourage good hygiene practices such as handwashing and cleaning.

The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

  • a high temperature– this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough– this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste– this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
