The school have been advised that diarrhoea and vomiting, along with other symptoms, could be an important sign of Covid-19 in children. Therefore, we must take all precautions to keep our children and staff safe.
Please can we ask if your child is unwell that they have a COVID test, even if they are not the regular symptoms. Please see the poster below for guidance.
We are doing our utmost to keep our pupils and staff safe and your help with this is very much appreciated.
