Coronavirus Guidance (COVID-19)

Last updated on Friday 22nd April 2022

Please ensure you and your family continue to follow the latest Government guidelines.

COVID-19 Symptoms

The most important symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:

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

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

What do we mean by possible or confirmed coronavirus infection (COVID-19)?

  • Possible infection is where a person has coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms and is currently awaiting a test result.
  • Confirmed infection is where a person has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

Main messages

If you have received a positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test result, the advice is to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least 5 full days. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy, hospital or attend school. 

Please  inform the school office if your child test result is positive.

Handwashing advice

Parents are encouraged to check the latest NHS guidance here: NHS guidance

The most important thing individuals can do to protect themselves is to wash their hands more often, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.
