If a child develops a fever, or a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell, they will be immediately isolated and cared for onsite by our school nurses. Parents will be informed, and we will arrange for the child to be tested. The guidance for households with possible coronavirus infection will be followed. At the present time, current guidance states that the ill person should remain in isolation for 7 days and the rest of the household in quarantine for 14 days. We would need to follow the government advice at the time for every individual case, but the current guidance suggests that pupils and staff who are not classified as being within the same household would be able to carry on coming into school.
If a day pupil, parent or member of staff should develop symptoms, they must remain at home and self-isolate for a period of 7 days. Their household must quarantine for 14 days.
