Symptoms of Covid 19

A new list of symptoms has been circulated to schools, which we have been asked to consider as possible signs of Covid-19.  Current advice is that children should not be in school if they are showing any of these symptoms:

cough, temperature, vomiting, diarrhoea, sleeping more than usual, complaining of not feeling themselves in anyway, agitated, cold, headache - anything that is not feeling themselves could be a sign of COVID-19.

If your child is ill, you should not send them into school.  If your child becomes unwell in school, we will isolate your child and contact you to collect them as usual. 

The main symptoms of coronavirus that require a test are:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

If your child develops these Covid 19 symptoms in school, they will be isolated and should be tested for the virus.  Any siblings will also be sent home.
