Further to the Prime Minister’s press conference, the updated guidance is that if anyone in a family presents with any of the Coronavirus symptoms – new, continuous cough or a high temperature (37.8 degrees and above) – the whole family should self-isolate for 14 days.
Parents will need to decide for their child whether self-isolation is necessary. School staff are not in a position to give advice about whether or not a child should be sent to school.
If another child in the family is sent home with any of these symptoms, then all children will need to return home and isolate for 14 days. Please report your child’s absence in the normal way.
