Please find a link to the most up to date guidance regarding Covid-19 and self isolation.
At present the guidance is that if a child is unwell then we can authorise the absence.
If a child is in self isolation and we have medical evidence that this is necessary then the absence is authorised.
If a child is in self isolation as a protective factor without medical evidence then then the absence will be unauthorised.
If your child has a new continuous cough or high temperature above 37.8C, stay off school and contact NHS 111. Let school know as soon as possible and feedback any advice given by NHS 111.
Any other illnesses and symptoms should be treated in the usual manner i.e. 48 hours for sickness.
