Coronavirus Information

My child is unwell - is it Covid?

The main symptoms are:

  • Feverish
  • A new, continuous cough
  • A loss or change to sense of smell or taste
  • Other symptoms might be: • Headache • Upset tummy • Sore throat • Unusually tired


Please be aware that with nearly all the positive cases at school initial symptoms have presented as a headache.


If in doubt get a test. You can get a PCR test to confirm if it is Covid here:

There are local test sites you can choose from, or if easier, you can get a test sent to you by post. At the test centre you will be advised to isolate until you get the test results.


Please note, a Lateral Flow Test should not be used to confirm Covid in a child with symptoms.
