NHS Guidance

Guidance from NHS on Covid Symptoms in children NHS website

It is vitally important  that parents seek advice from NHS111 if their child (or anyone in their household) is displaying symptoms which fit that of Covid-19 (see Covid Symptoms in children )

There is a NHS 111 Symptoms Check website which asks a series of questions and then provides clear advice. It can be found here Symptoms Check NHS  It takes no more than 2 minutes to complete. 

Any parent who believes their child is displaying symptoms, including a cold/sore throat are asked to complete this online check.  This will then advise whether you should

  • Call 111 for medical advice
  • Book a Covid Test for the person with symptoms and self isolate everyone in your household.
  • Treat your child (or other family member) at home

When calling school to report your child's absence, we will ask if you have completed the NHS 111 online check and, if not, we will ask you to do this and then let us know the outcome; including whether you have been advised that a Coronavirus test is required.  Should a positive test result be returned, we will then contact Public Health England who will then tell us what has to happen next.

 

If you suspect your child has symptoms or has tested positive, please let us know as soon as possible by emailing adminoffice@heatherside-jun.hants.sch.uk or by calling 01252 617928 during school hours.
