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, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

Children are likely to become infected with coronavirus (COVID-19) at roughly the same rate as adults, but the infection is usually mild.

If anyone has any of the symptoms above they should self-isolate at home.

The Government has produced the following guidance poster to support the sharing of their strategy:

In addition, we have produced the flow-chart below to explain what happens in the instance of a confirmed or suspected case of COVID19.

TRANSITION AND WELLBEING

At Turners Hill CofE Primary School we recognise that children’s experiences during the past weeks of the Covid 19 Lockdown will have been different and varied and that each child, to a greater or lesser degree, will have experienced pressures that have been placed on families during this time including financial, health and well-being.  At Turners Hill CE School we believe it is important to recognise this and to put children’s well-being at the centre of our planned, transitional return to school.  We believe that it is by working together as a school community that we will find effective solutions to ensure that the needs of our children are met.

Behaviour Policy Update

Taken from Preparing for the Wider Opening of Schools from 1 June, DFE Guidance:

'In light of the need for children to behave differently when they return to school, and any new systems you have put in place to support that, you’ll need to make changes to your behaviour policy.'

In light of this guidance, we have produced a temporary Behaviour Policy for the duration of the phased re-opening.

Children will be using this guidance to produce new classroom rules and charters.
