Coronavirus - Help and Information

School Covid isolation update

What happens if my child has symptoms at home or at school? If symptoms start at home, let school know and do not send them to school. If symptoms start at School, we will ask you to collect your child as soon as possible. For both situations, you should book a PCR test straight away or ring 119. Let us know the result of the test.

What about the other children in the class and school? They can carry on coming to school as normal. Even if the other child’s test is positive, your child will not have to isolate and can carry on coming to school. Your child will only have to isolate if contacted by NHS Test and Trace or if there is an outbreak in school.

What happens if my child is positive? Your child will need to self-isolate for 10 full days after the day symptoms appeared (or 10 days from PCR test if no symptoms). You may not need to isolate yourself if you fall into one of the categories below.

What happens if my child is negative? Your child can return to school as soon as they are well enough.

What happens if there is an outbreak in the school? We will work with Public health and send certain groups of children home to learn and carry out a deep clean of the affected area.


Close contacts or household members of a positive case are exempt from self-isolating if any of the following applies:

  • They are fully vaccinated
  • They are below the age of 18 years and 6 months
  • They have taken part in or are currently part of an approved COVID19 vaccine trial.
  • They are not able to get vaccinated for medical reasons.

Coronavirus - what you need to know!


You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus!

  • Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:
  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
  • If you’re worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 – don’t go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
