What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19

 For most people, especially children, COVID-19 will be a mild illness.

 The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of:

  • new continuous cough and/or
  • high temperature and/or
  • a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

If your child develops any of these symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home and arrangements should be made for them to be tested. This should be a  a rapid test (LFT). Once this has been recorded on the government website we ask that you send this to

Individuals with positive LFT results:

  • Self-isolate for 5 clear days (adults) and 3 clear days (children) minimum after the day of test – which is day 0. Can then return to normal activities only if well enough and don't have a temperature.
  • If deisolating before the end of 10 days, avoid contact with vulnerable individuals
  • Return to school if well and do not have a temperature, on day 6 (adults) or day 4 (children)
  • Above Includes SEND settings

How to stop COVID-19 spreading

There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
