Covid-19 Guidance

Please remember to follow the latest Government Guidance regarding symptoms and the need for isolation if any member of your household shows them.  


  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

If a child is tested, the school must be informed of the result of the test. If it is positive, NHS Test and Trace will advise you of your next steps. If the test is negative then children may return to school if well enough to do so.

Regular Lateral Flow Testing for people without symptoms

There has also been further guidance released on 27th February regarding accessing regular Lateral Flow Testing for people without symptoms in households with children of school age in them.

The guidance states that:

The following people in England will have access to regular rapid lateral flow testing made available to them as schools reopen:

  • secondary school pupils
  • primary and secondary school staff
  • households, childcare and support bubbles of primary and secondary-age pupils
  • households, childcare and support bubbles of primary and secondary staff

Primary school pupils will not be asked to test at this time.

The guidance can be accessed using the link below and clearly explains how to order tests.
