As you will appreciate at this time of year there is always an increase in illnesses in schools. With colds and flu currently on the rise it becomes difficult to differentiate symptoms from those of COVID. We are currently seeing a rise in the number of unwell children attending the medical room as soon as they arrive at the school.
It would therefore be prudent that any child feeling unwell, in any way, conducts a lateral flow test at home before leaving for school. Even if their result is negative, if they are too unwell to be in school please keep them at home until they are well enough to actively participate in lessons.
