Information for Parents: What To Do If Your Child Has COVID-19 Symptoms



How to stop COVID-19 spreading

There are things you and your children can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards


Symptoms of COVID 19

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:

  • new continuous cough and/or
  • high temperature and/or
  • a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.


It is important that outside of school we all follow the government guidance around Covid-19, particularly the Stay at Home guidance below and do not bring your child into school.


If you do keep your child off school due to Covid-19 symptoms, please ensure that you let us know this when you register your child’s absence.


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


If your child does develop symptoms, you can seek advice from NHS 111 at

or phone 111 .



It is vitally important that anyone who presents with Covid-19 symptoms get tested as soon as possible.


You are now able to obtain 'asymptomatic' test kits for your family to carry out regularly at home.


If someone from within school is confirmed with Covid-19, we 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 ‘bubble’ or if they have been in close contact through other groups such as after school or breakfast club.  These children will be asked to self-isolate for 14 days.   Other members of the household do not need to self-isolate, unless your child 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.


I would like to close by reminding all of us that we have a role to play to ensure that our children and school community remain safe.


Thank you for your continued support and patience.


Yours Sincerely,


Mr R Thompson
