As I am sure you can imagine, attendance at school will be quite an issue over the coming months. We already have some children off as a precaution because they are exhibiting one, or more, of the following Covid symptoms:
Dry, persistent cough.
Loss of the sense of taste or smell.
Should your child display any of these symptoms, please ring 119 to arrange a test for your child. They will not be able to come into school until you get the results back. If they are negative, they can simply come back to school. If they are positive, please tell school straight away as we will need to contact Public Health England for instruction on what to do next.
If you are unsure on what to do, please contact school and we will advise you as best we can.
I have attached on a general information leaflet on attendance for your perusal.
