Can my child be in school with a cold?
Yes, provided they do not develop a temperature or a new continuous cough or report a lost of taste or smell, in which case you would need to stay at home and obtain a test for your child.
If my child has symptoms but I can't get a test for my child, what should I do?
You will have to keep them off and ensure that they self-isolate for 10 days after the symptoms started.
Will I be able to get work for my child if they are off school?
Yes, the remote learning is now on the website and will be monitored regularly. If you go to the 'Learners' tab you can find the work and also be able to read the policy. We also aim to contact you daily either via Google Classrooms (for learners in Years 5&6) or via telephone so that we can adjust/adapt learning as needed.
If my child has a negative result can my child come back to school?
Yes, they can come back the day after they get the result or later that day if you receive the result in the morning.
Can my child attend school if someone in the household has symptoms or tests positive?Yes your child can continue to attend school but it is recommended that they undertake daily LFD testing for the following 7 days. Provided this remains negative and they do not develop symptoms, they may continue to attend as normal. The household member must still isolate and should not attend the school site to collect or drop off your child.
Should my child get a test if someone in my house has tested positive?
Test and trace will advise you about this but guidance now states that they should carry our daily LFD testing for the next 7 days. We also request that you inform the school that this is happening so that we can remain vigilant for any symptoms too.
