COVID-19: Guidance for Parents

It is very important that staff and parents are clear about the advice regarding self-isolation and what it means:

 

Self Isolation should mean, staying at home and as far as possible staying away from family members and in separate rooms. 

 

The advice is to self-isolate if you display any one of more of the symptoms which are:

  • New continuous cough
  • High temperature
  • Shortness of breath – likely to follow after the first 2 symptoms.

 

Please note that the advice is for a ‘new’ cough.  I appreciate this will be difficult to assess but it is important that I remind you that many other viruses are still circulating at this time of year.

 

The self-isolation period is for 7 days unless symptoms worsen, in which case you should call NHS 111 for more guidance.

 

Latest guidance states that is not necessary for other family members or siblings to self-isolate unless they too are displaying symptoms.  We will need to keep a log of all pupils self-isolating - the expected period is for 7 days, please advise the school if you have been advised to isolate your child.  

 

If you have any concerns in regards to your child’s health at this time; NHS 111 have an online advice system where you can provide specific details of your concerns. As a school we cannot advise you on your child’s symptoms and the subsequent actions; NHS 111 guidance should be followed. Please do not phone them unless it is an emergency.
