Covid-19 Procedures

November 2021

What are the school procedures around Covid-19?


Our Covid-19 procedures are taken directly from the Welsh Government and are as follows:


If a child has mild cold-like symptoms, and no one in their household has any of the main COVID-19 symptoms or has tested positive for coronavirus, they should continue to go to school, if fit to do so.


The three main symptoms of COVID-19 to be aware of are:

  • a new continuous cough
  • fever or high temperature
  • loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste

If your child develops one of these symptoms they should follow the self-isolation guidance and you should apply for a coronavirus test


What is the guidance around the under 5?


We no longer recommend that children under 5 years of age take COVID-19 tests without symptoms. Where children under 5 do have symptoms we would not routinely recommend tests unless directed to do so by a doctor or if parents believe a test is absolutely necessary and in the best interests of the child.



What should I do if someone tests positive in my household?


Should someone in your household test positive for Covid-19, please follow the guidance below.
