If your child is unwell
Dear Parents and Carers,
Now is not the time to be complacent about Covid.
If your child is sent home unwell and you are asked to take them for a test by school, please ensure you do take them for a PCR test. https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
We recommend anyone presenting with symptoms from the extended list, (shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle aches, headaches, sore throat, congestion/runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhoea ) should get a PCR test.
We are not only concerned for the wellbeing of your child but the welfare of the other children and our staff the majority of whom are still unvaccinated. These staff are working closely with the children in their bubble and we are concerned about their welfare and their family’s welfare.
If staff become ill this will result in bubble closures which we are trying our best to avoid.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs C. Mitchell
