COVID-19 Cases in Half Term 

If your child does have a test at any point over the coming half term and tests positive you must still contact us at school so we can assess if anybody has had close contact and take appropriate action. Please do this by contacting me via email on or your class teachers through your usual means of communication.  


The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:  

  • a new continuous cough  
  • a high temperature  
  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)  


For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness. 

If your child does develop symptoms, you can seek advice from the website at   

If you are concerned about your child’s symptoms, or they are worsening you can seek advice from NHS 111 at or by phoning 111.  

Wishing you all a restful half term. 

Miss Clark
