COVID-19 Information and Advice

We have received a great deal of queries about the symptoms of COVID-19 and when to seek a test or self isolate etc... and we thought some of this information may be of help to you. We are not medical professionals and can only follow the official advice and guidance put in place by our local authority, the GovernmentDFENHS, and WHO

As we approach the winter months there will be lots of colds and flu going around and it is important to  try and recognise the different symptoms and know when to seek medical advice and when to quarantine. Common cold symptoms such as a cough, runny nose and sneezing should not prevent a child from attending school and can usually be treated with over the counter medicines. Please ensure when coughing or sneezing you cover your mouth/nose with your arm and dispose of tissues in the grey Covid/PPE bins provided around the academy as well as washing or sanitising your hands afterwards. This will help to prevent the spread of colds and viruses.
