As we head into Autumn please can I remind everyone that if your child has any COVID like symptoms – cough, runny nose, temperature – it is important that they stay home and have a COVID test.
I know this is very like typical cold symptoms, but early testing is the only way of telling the difference. We are required to send home for testing any children who have COVID like symptoms.
At present the turn round time for test results seems to be under 24 hours, so this should not result in children having too much time off school. We are keen for the children to attend as often as they possibly can to give us the best chance to help them catch up with any leaning missed last year.
