COVID-19

During the Covid-19 pandemic, it is extremely important that everyone follows Government advice about when to self isolate and take a PCR test.

If your child has one of the 3 main symptoms of Covid – a high temperature, a new cough and/or a change in taste and smell, they must not come in to Nursery. Please take them for a PCR test and isolate them at home until you get the results. If it is negative your child can come back to school. If it is positive, they must stay at home for 10 full days from the day after they first showed symptoms. If a PCR test isn’t taken, we have to treat this as a possible case of Covid and your child will not be able to attend school for 10 days.
