Key Information 

If anyone becomes unwell with a new persistent cough or a high temperature (+37.8), or has a loss of or change in, their normal sense taste or smell (anosmia), they must stay at home or be sent home and advised to follow the guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, which sets out that they should self-isolate for at least 10 days and should arrange to have a test to see if they have the infection.

If they have tested positive whilst not expereincing symptoms but develop symptoms during the isolation period, they should restart the 10-day isolation period from the day they develop symptoms.

Other members of the household (including siblings) should self-isolate for 14 days from when the symptomatic person first had symptoms.

We will provide general home learning activities for children whilst awaiting test results (2-3 days) These can be found on our home learning page.

On Thursday 24th September, the NHS Test and Trace app introducing-the-app was launched. Please see the information leaflet below for guidance and advise on how to use this service. Test and Trace app Factsheet
