Bishop King School - Risk Assessment - updated 29th June 2021

We would like to clarify that if any member of a child's household displays any of the symptoms of coronavirus (but has not yet had a test result) or has tested positive then they MUST self-isolate.

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high 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.

Advice to parents - Added 16th September 2020

If your child has been absent from school awaiting a covid test or a member of your household has been tested, please can we ask that you bring proof of the results to the school office or email a photo/copy to - This is not a legal requirement, however for the wellbeing of all our staff and our children in school we ask that proof is shown.
