If your child or anyone in your household is displaying COVID-19 symptoms they MUST stay at home. Please report their absence to The Bolsover School and arrange for the person displaying symptoms to have a COVID-19 test. Once you have received the results, please inform the school as soon as possible.
Coronavirus Symptoms and Isolation Guidance
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.
Please see the NHS guidance on how to check if you or your child has coronavirus symptoms: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/
If your child did not receive an at home testing kit and you wish to opt-in to the scheme, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school directly on 01246 822105.
