COVID-19 Frequently asked questions

What do I do if my child has symptoms of COVID-19 or tests positive?

Pupils, staff and family members/visitors should not attend school if they have any COVID-19 symptoms. If they become symptomatic they should take an LFT as soon as possible, and self-isolate until the outcome of the test, if the test is negative they can leave self-isolation.

Inform the school office that your child has symptoms and is getting a test. Report the positive result to the school office.

If anyone tests positive for COVID-19 they must self-isolate and not attend school. For further information on self-isolation, follow the link

  • a new continuous cough
  • a high temperature
  • loss of or change to sense of smell or taste

What if my child becomes ill in school?

If anyone in school becomes unwell with a new and persistent cough or a high temperature, or has a loss of or change in their normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia), the school will continue to follow the arrangements we have in place and the individual must be sent home immediately and advised to follow guidance for households with possible or confirmed COVID-19 infection, i.e. the individual should begin to self-isolate and should arrange to have a COVID-19 Lateral flow test.


What will school be doing to reduce risk to pupils, staff and visitors?

  • We will ensure that regular COVID-19 risk assessments continue to be undertaken. The assessment will directly address risks associated with COVID-19, to enable measures to be put in place to control those risks.
  • We will continue to encourage regular handwashing and respiratory etiquette (Catch it, Bin it, Kill it).
  • Ensure adequate ventilation by opening windows etc.
  • Encourage physical distancing wherever possible, however, we recognise that when working with younger learners this may not always be possible.
  • Make as much use as possible of the available outdoor space.
  • Ensure appropriate cleaning regimes are in place.
  • Using face coverings where advised-Parents/Carers and visitors are requested to wear face coverings when on the school site. School staff in communal areas.
  • Request that parents/carers do not to remain on the premises/at the gates longer than necessary especially when dropping off/collecting children.
  • Continue to communicate with staff, learners, and parents/carers the key COVID-19 messages and interventions relevant to our school.
  • Restrict parent/visitor access into the school building by appointment only.
