Guidance from the NHS states that the main symptoms of coronavirus are:
- 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.
Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms.
If your child or a member of your immediate family are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please book a test immediately. More information can be found by clicking here. Please do not bring your child into school or enter our school site.
If your child is going to be absent from school due to COVID-19, please can you inform the school office either via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (01494 712050). We have created home learning packs for children who are well but are having to isolate.

Catch Up Premium
Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of COVID-19. The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off catch-up premium for this academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.
Our strategy document for this academic year can be found below.
