Testing for children
Children from age 2 upwards can now be tested at the Leisure Centre. It would be really helpful if you could get your child tested before they return on March 8th and then once or twice a week up until Easter. With over a third of people with COVID being asymptomatic and not even knowing they’ve got it, this is a good way of making sure that it’s not being spread at school. Staff at school are currently being tested twice every week for the same reasons.
If your child or anyone else in your household has COVID-19 symptoms (persistent cough, high temperature or loss or change to sense of taste or smell) they must not come to school. You should arrange a test through the online portal or call 119. Household members must self-isolate for 10 days unless the test result is negative. If the result is negative they can stop self-isolating.
