Covid 19 Symptoms 

If your child develops Covid-19 symptoms please do not send them into school. You should inform school that they will be absent and arrange for a test.  All members of the household should self-isolate.  Please inform school of the outcome of the test.  Please contact school if you are having difficulty accessing a test.  The main symptoms of Covid 19 are: 

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature) 

  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual) 

  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal 

Further advice is available on the NHS website.  

If your child tests positive for Covid-19 please inform school at the earliest opportunity by email: covid-alert@alderchs.uk
