Covid-19 – Know The Symptoms
Thank you to all our families for their continued support and understanding throughout our return to school with regards to Covid-19.
We would like to remind parents and carers of the common symptoms and that pupils should not attend school if:
- They are displaying any of the symptoms associated with Covid-19 such as a high temperature (37.8C or above), a new continuous cough or a change in sense of smell or taste.
- A member of the household has tested positive or is displaying symptoms.
- They have been contacted as part of the Test and Protect programme.
- If a pupil is returning from a country from which as are required to quarantine for 14 days. An up to date list of countries affected by this can be found at https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-public-health-checks-at-borders/pages/exemptions/
Should you require to arrange a test for a your child or a member of your household, please follow the guidance given on the NHS Inform website and book a test via https://self-referral.test-for-coronavirus.service.gov.uk
We recognise that accessing a drive through test site or a home test kit may be extremely challenging for some of our pupils and if this is the case, you may be eligible for testing to be carried out at home by the NHS. If you require this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org giving the pupil’s name, date of birth, full address, GP information and a brief explanation for special circumstances which require the need to be tested at home rather than through a home test kit or drive through test site.
We kindly ask that parents and carers keep the school informed of any testing being undertaken and the results by phoning the school on 01224 788950.
