Our children are central to all that we do.

What to do if my child is unwell during the Coronavirus?


We have been advised to offer the following advice to families who have a child who is unwell, and wondering whether to send them into school.


  • If your child develops a new or continuous cough or high temperature, they should remain off school for 7 days
  • 37.8 c and above is considered to be a high temperature
  • There is no new Coronavirus testing taking place, only those people who are hospitalised will be tested
  • People with symptoms are being told not to call 111.  Instead, they are to go on the NHS website or 111 online
  • The current advice which has been given to us is that this only applies to the individual child who is unwell


Thank you
