Please find all the relevant information you need to know regarding Covid-19 and how it may affect your child's attendance in school.

We have been living with the coronavirus pandemic for many months now, and much of the health information related to COVID-19 will be clear to most people. However, if you are unsure about any specific information, we recommend that you visit the government advice website via the link below:

In order to minimise the risk of any infection spreading in the school, it is very important that all members of the school community follow government advice regarding self-isolation. Regarding this, please read the following guidance carefully.

Self-Isolation Guidance

If a child under 18 years and 6 months shows symptoms that may be caused by COVID-19, they must Self-isolate straight away and get a PCR test (a test that is sent to the lab) on GOV.UK as soon as possible if you have any of these 3 symptoms of COVID-19, even if they are mild:

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


Due to the constantly evolving landscape, please use the link below to access the most up to date Government guidance, and if you have specific questions please contact [email protected]
