If someone develops symptoms while in School


If your child presents Covid-19 symptoms in school, we will take your child to a safe area in school and contact you immediately to pick them up.  Please make sure that your emergency contact details are up to date and correct.


The child will be moved to a room where they can be isolated behind a closed door, depending on the age and needs of the child, with appropriate adult supervision if required. Ideally, a window will be opened for ventilation. If it is not possible to isolate them, they will be moved to an area which is at least 2 metres away from other people.


•If they need to go to the bathroom while waiting to be collected, they will use a separate bathroom if possible. The bathroom will be cleaned and disinfected using standard cleaning products before being used by anyone else.




Procedure if we have a confirmed case in School


If someone from within school is confirmed with Covid-19, Track and Trace will get in touch with the parents and carers of any children who have been in close contact with this person. 


This is likely to be children from their class or if they have been in close contact through other groups such as after school or breakfast club.  These children will be contacted by Track and Trace if they have been in close contact with the child or adult who has a positive case.


Other members of the household do not need to self-isolate, unless they also develops symptoms. 


Full details and instructions will be provided at the time.  We will also send information to our wider school community as a reminder to our families of what actions you can take to reduce the spread of the virus.
