Key Worker Group - Important information on Procedures for Covid symptoms and other illnesses

Dear Parents


We would like to remind you that if any child should display symptoms they MUST get a test. Any positive case will render bubbles closed down and we will not be able to support those front line workers who are needed to ensure that the country’s infrastructure, particularly the NHS and vaccine programme, can continue to run. 


Should you or your child test positive please advise the school offices immediately.


Whilst we are aware that there are a number of winter viruses circulating at this time of year, we would like to rule out the possibility of the virus passing between children and staff in our bubbles.


Please note:


1.  We are still advising immediate isolation to anyone who is suffering from the classical symptoms, namely: new continuous cough; a high temperature (fever); or a loss of or change in taste and smell.


2.  Pupils with any of the symptoms below are not expected to isolate immediately but we would advise that you consider your child taking a test to rule out Covid-19.


Non classical symptoms include:


·         Vomiting/Nausea

·         Diarrhoea

·         Sleeping more than usual/extreme tiredness

·         Shortness of breath

·         Feeling cold

·         Headache

·         Severe body aches

·         Sore throat

·         Congested/runny nose

·         Skin rash

·         Complaining of not feeling themselves


If your child should have vomiting or diarrhoea, the 48-hour rule that applies to children during normal circumstances does still apply.


Our Key worker and vulnerable child childcare support is increasing in demand. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that if you have a responsible adult at home during this time that this is absolutely the safest place for your child to be. We are working hard to keep everyone safe at school but we cannot guarantee that the children will social distance at all times.


Best wishes and keep safe
