Coronavirus Symptoms

The most important symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:

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

For most people, COVID-19 will be a mild illness. However, if your child has any of the symptoms above they must stay at home in accordance with the Government guidelines.

If your child is taken ill in school or has an accident, you will be contacted.  For this reason it is vital that if you change your address or telephone number, or work details, you will let us know immediately.



For safety reasons, no medicines or tablets are allowed in school. Exceptions are made in the cases of asthma and diabetes.  If your child suffers from asthma, a named inhaler and clear written instructions relating to its use must be provided.  Inhalers are kept in the classrooms and children have access to their inhaler at any time they may need them. If a child needs to take medicine during the day, parents are welcome to come into school and administer it.


If you have any queries, please contact the school office.
