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. A test can be booked by the following route:
