The most important symptoms of Coronavirus are recent onset of the following:
For most people, COVID-19 will be a mild illness. However, if you or your child have any of the symptoms above, stay at home and arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19.
Response to any infection
As a school we will follow the PHE South East Health Protection Team’s advice carefully.
If someone tests positive, they should follow the guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus infection and must continue to self-isolate for at least 10 days from the onset of their symptoms and then return to school only if they do not have symptoms other than cough or loss of sense of smell/taste. This is because a cough or anosmia can last for several weeks once the infection has gone. If they have a high temperature, they should keep self-isolating until their temperature returns to normal. Other members of their household should continue self-isolating for the full 10 days.
The school has clear guidance to follow if there is a confirmed case.
Schools must contact the local health protection team. This team will also contact schools directly if they become aware that someone who has tested positive for coronavirus attended the school – as identified by NHS Test and Trace.
The health protection team will carry out a rapid risk assessment to confirm who has been in close contact with the person during the period that they were infectious, and ensure they are asked to self-isolate.
The health protection team will work with schools in this situation to guide them through the actions they need to take. They will provide definitive advice on who must be sent home.
