Coronavirus Advice

Coronavirus remains prevalent across the country with high case numbers continuing in schools.  However, from 1st April 2022 all remaining restrictions were removed and the Government moved to it's 'Living with Covid' advice.

 

Coronavirus Symptoms

The list of Coronavirus symptoms was updated on 1st April 2022 and are now as follows:

  • a high temperature or shivering (chills)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a headache
  • a sore throat
  • diarrhoea
  • feeling sick or being sick
  • feeling tired or exhausted
  • an aching body
  • a blocked or runny nose
  • loss of appetite
  • shortness of breath
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

 

What to do if your child has symptoms

Your child should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people if they have symptoms of COVID-19 and they either:

  • have a high temperature
  • do not feel well enough to go to school, college or childcare, or do their normal activities

 

They can return to school when they feel better or do not have a high temperature.

 

If your child has mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat or mild cough, and they feel well enough, they can go to school, college or childcare.

 

Encourage your child to cover their mouth and nose with a tissue when they cough or sneeze, and to wash their hands after using or throwing away tissues.

 

Most children who are unwell will recover in a few days with rest and plenty of fluids.

 

Vomiting and Diarrhoea

Normal rules apply for any instances of vomiting and/or diarrhoea.  Children should not come to school until 48 hours have passed since the last episode of vomiting / diarrhoea.
