Learning at home | 5th January 2020
Following government guidance we are closed to all children, apart from vulnerable students and children of key workers.
The Government is asking parents to keep children at home whenever possible.
Are you a key worker? The Government has published the list of parents who are classed as key workers, you can find that list here.
The most important message is that if children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.
What am I looking for?
|High temperature||Any new high temperature where your child feels hot to touch on their chest or back|
|A new continuous cough||Coughing a lot for more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours|
|Loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste||they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal|
What needs to happen?
- Keep your child at home – let us know they’ll be off
- Book a Covid-19 test immediately – online or call 119
- If the test is negative they can return to school
