The government’s approach is to now manage the virus like other respiratory infections.
Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough to attend. Parents and carers should report their child’s absence to the school by calling the school office.
There is no requirement for children to undertake a PCR or LFD test if they have coronavirus symptoms.
Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in education settings and schools will not be provided with these. This means that secondary section pupils will no longer be provided with Lateral Flow Devices by the school.
