Pupils and staff should not attend schools or settings if they:
  • have any of the three classic COVID-19 symptoms

  • are a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case
Please ring the school to report that your child or a family member is ill.

If you develop COVID-19 symptoms you should book a test online​​​​​​​​​​​External link opens in a new window or by phoning 119. Please follow the self-isolation guidance​

The three classic COVID-19 symptoms are:
  • a new continuous cough
  • a high temperature
  • a loss or change to your sense of taste or smell
Testing is also available for residents who are experiencing a wider range of symptoms and these are new, persistent and/or unusual symptoms for them.

The extended list of COVID-19 symptoms are:
  • fatigue
  • myalgia (muscle ache or pain)
  • a sore throat
  • a headache
  • a runny nose
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhoea
The extended list of symptoms applies to children and adults and the same steps should be followed whatever your age.

Testing for extended symptoms is not a legal requirement, however it is strongly advised that a test is booked for anyone experiencing extended COVID-19 symptoms.
