COVID-19: Parent Information

Dear Parents and Carers

This page of the web site will provide you with the information you need to understand in regard to Harris Academy South Norwood for operating the Academy safely, planning for local restrictions and also what to do if your child is ill.

What to do if your child has COVID-19 symptoms?

If your child has COVID-19 symptoms or has had a positive test result they stay at home and self-isolate immediately. If they have symptoms of COVID-19, you should arrange for them to have a PCR test as soon as possible. This still applies even if they have been vaccinated.

If your child lives in the same household as someone who has Covid symptoms of has had a positive test they do not need to self-isolate as long as they are under 18 years and 6 months, the only caveat to this is if they themselves develop symptoms or if they have been contacted by NHS Test and Trace and advised to self-isolate.

Click here for further NHS guidance for households.

If your child has to self-isolate, how long do they self-isolate for?

You must follow the latest advise from the NHS, click here for further information.

What testing is available?

There are 2 main types of test currently being used to detect if someone has COVID-19:

  • polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests
  • lateral flow device antigen (LFD) tests - also known as rapid lateral flow tests

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should arrange to have a PCR test.

People who live in the same household as someone with COVID-19 can also take a PCR test, as they are at higher risk of being infected even if they do not have symptoms.

Can my child attend school if they have returned from abroad?

You must follow the most up to date guidance about quarantine or isolation, click here to see government guidance.

What are the main symptoms of COVID-19?

  •   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


What to do if you have symptoms?

If you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, even if they're mild:

  1. Get a PCR test (test that is sent to a lab) to check if you have COVID-19 as soon as possible.
  2. Stay at home and do not have visitors (self-isolate) until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test. Check if people you live with need to self-isolate.

You must also call the Academy and inform them of your issue and you will be given further advice about what to do next.
