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 three 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 from normal

Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms.

If a child develops any of these symptoms in school, their parents/carers will be contacted and they must pick them up immediately.

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is adhering to the latest Government guidance on how to help to reduce the spread of coronavirus in school, which can be found via:
