Under current government guidelines, the 3 mains symptoms to be aware of for COVID-19 in children are:


  • A high temperature (Above 37.8)

  • A new, continuous cough.  

  • A loss/change of taste or smell.

It is vital that you have your own thermometer at home so you can measure your child's temperature accurately and correctly. You will need this information when speaking to Health Professionals.


If your child or anyone in your child's household is showing any of these symptoms, you MUST book a COVID-19 test. Your child will not be able to return to school until you are aware of the COVID test result. Please find more information by clicking on the link below.
