If the symptoms start whilst at school, the student and their siblings (where appropriate as a precaution) will be isolated and must be collected immediately and taken home. Staff will also be required to return home immediately.
Get a test.
Check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
Click here with information on how to do this. Inform the school of the test outcome as soon as possible. We have been advised by the Department for Education that you are able to conduct an NHS online questionnaire to check if you have appropriate symptoms.
If the questionnaire outcome is 'unlikely to have Coronavirus' this is sufficient for you to return to school. The school must see a screenshot of the outcome of this questionnaire before you return.
Stay At Home
Do not have visitors until you get your test – only leave your home to have a test. As a precaution, siblings should also remain at home until the outcome of the test is known.
