There is a lot of information available from various sources regarding Covid-19 or Coronavirus. The school is receiving regular updates and advice from Leeds City Council and the Government to make sure we are doing all we can to keep you and your children safe. We will keep this section of the website regularly updated with the latest information so you can refer to it and do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe.
Wash your hands, cover your face, make space
The video below explains how easily Covid-19 can spread and how following three simple steps can help to minimise the spread.
What to do if your child displays any symptoms
The most important symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:
- a new continuous cough
- a high temperature
- a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)
For most people, COVID-19 will be a mild illness. However, if you have any of the symptoms above, stay at home and arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19.
Go to the NHS testing page to arrange.
For advice in other languages, we have translations available here.
If your child has any of the Covid-19 symptoms above, you must book a test. Do not send your child to school until you have spoken to the office on 0113 235 0539 and confirmed it is safe for them to return.
Testing at home
If you have been sent a kit to test your child at home, Leeds City Council have provided the following guide to help you perform the test correctly.
Clinically Extremely Vulnerable FAQ for parents
1. Should my clinically extremely vulnerable child go to school?
- More evidence has emerged that shows there is a very low risk of children becoming very unwell from COVID-19, even for children with existing health conditions. Most children originally identified as clinically extremely vulnerable no longer need to follow this advice. Speak to your GP or specialist clinician if you have not already done so, to understand whether your child should still be classed as clinically extremely vulnerable.
- Those children whose doctors have confirmed they are still clinically extremely vulnerable are advised not to attend school whilst this advice is in place.
2. What provisions will be made available to support children who need to access remote learning and cannot attend school?
- If following a discussion with your GP or clinician, your child is unable to attend school, your school will make appropriate arrangements for them to be able to continue their education at home.
3. I am clinically extremely vulnerable so should my child go to school?
- Children who live with someone who is clinically extremely vulnerable, but who are not clinically extremely vulnerable themselves, should still attend school.
