When should my child self-isolate or miss school?

 

 

 

 

NO

  • All children MUST attend school unless they are ill.
  • From 16th August 2021, children under 18 and 6 months (or double-vaccinated adults) do not need to self-isolate or miss school if a member of their household or a contact, has Covid.
  • Instead, they will need to book a PCR test but can continue coming to school so long as they have no symptoms and the test result is negative.

 

 

 

YES

  • If your child develops Covid symptoms at home, they should stay at home and should book a PCR test), NOT a Lateral Flow test.
  • If your child develops Covid symptoms at school, they will be sent home and you should book them a PCR test.
  • If your child tests positive for Covid, they will need to self-isolate. The rest of the household does not need to self-isolate if they are under 18 or fully vaccinated – but instead should book a PCR test.
