Covid testing- what to do

If your child has displayed Covid-19 symptoms and you have been asked to get a test then please follow the below instructions. Currently the symptoms associated with coronavirus are:

-A high temperature

-A new, continuous cough 

-A loss or change to your sense of smell or tast

1) Follow this link https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test and book a test online. Should you struggle to use the internet then call 119.

2) Inform us at school so that we can ensure that everyone who needs to know is informed.

3) Stay at home if you have symptoms and travel only to get a test. You must then stay at home until you get a test.

4) Inform us of the outcome of the test as soon as possible.

 

Should you require any help at all please just call us and we will try our best.

 

UPDATE:

The testing shortage is causing huge issues. We have been advised that tests are released daily and to keep trying the online portal throughout the day. Should a test be unavailable then the person with symptoms must isolate for 10 full days and the household 14 days.
