If your child tests positive for Covid 19 please phone school immediately. If school is closed, please email email@example.com giving your child's name, class and date of the positive test result. This will help us to plan what to do next. We will seek advice from Public Health Birmingham about whether we need to close the bubble.
If someone else in your household tests positive or is displaying symptoms your child CANNOT come to school. They must isolate for 14 days.
Please help us to stay open to as many children as possible by following the rules.
If your child has symptoms
Do not send your child to school if they or another member of the household have Covid symptoms. These include dry persistent cough, a temperature and loss of taste and smell.
You must isolate them and arrange a test as soon as possible.
Let school know when you have the result.
If the person with symptoms does not get tested, they must self isolate for 10 days from the onset of symptoms. The rest of the household must isolate for 14 days.
If your child is isolating and waiting for test results.....
