If you live with others, the person who has symptoms should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms started. All other household members should stay at home for 14 days even if they don’t have symptoms themselves. The 14-day period starts from the first day the person had symptoms.

If anyone in your household has suspected or confirmed Coronavirus, please make us aware at your very earliest opportunity via firstname.lastname@example.org - we will treat this with the strictest confidence and not disclose your identity to others.
In the event that you decide to keep your child home due to the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 (no symptoms present), please be aware that this will be recorded as an unauthorised absence and that you will have the responsibility to make arrangements for your child's learning.
