We have also included the Department of Education guidance below which shows the actions that staff must take if a child presents with Covid-19 symptoms at school.
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
