What will happen if your child shows symptoms of COVID-19 whilst at school

A statement from Mrs Bell, Headteacher (27th August 2020)

 

  • If your child displays any symptoms of COVID-19 whilst at school, you will be contacted, by phone, to collect them. They will be supervised by a member of staff whilst they are waiting for you to come to school.
  • You will then need to arrange a COVID test for your child and your family. You can do this by calling 119.
  • The child must be kept in isolation at home for at least 10 days and must not attend school, socialise or be in a public place.
  • If any of the household test positive for COVID-19, then all members of the household must isolate, and not leave the house for 14 days. If anyone else in the house develops symptoms, they must start their quarantine again from the day they develop symptoms.
  • You must call school and keep us up to date with the results of the tests.

 

COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

  • a new persistent cough
  • loss of taste or smell
  • a high temperature

 

  • Call 119 or to arrange a test or to get more advice.
  • Google NHS COVID for more information
  • If your child seems very unwell, is getting worse or you think there is something seriously wrong, call 999.
     

INCORRECT INFORMATION

  • There are some messages circulating on social media, which are totally untrue. These message state that Headteachers will arrange for your child to be taken away from you if they have symptoms of COVID-19. THIS IS NOT TRUE.
  • If your child had symptoms, we will call you, using the numbers that we hold on file for you. We will not take your children away or call social services. We will call you and ask you to come and collect your child as soon as you are able to. You will then arrange for the test to be carried out and let school know the results.

 

NON COVID-19 SYMPTOMS


If your child does not have any of the COVID-19 symptoms but does;

  • Feel unwell but has a temperature of less than 37.8c,
  • Vomit or has diarrhoea,
  • Have a sore throat,
  • Have a loss of appetite,
  • Have a rash,
  • Have fatigue / aches,
  • or have any other general illnesses or is feeling unwell....

you are advised to monitor the child closely.

 

 

A message from staff at Reedley 

During these uncertain times, the staff at Reedley just wanted to let you know that you are in our thoughts. Can you spot the new member of Team Reedley? 

Every Child Matters

It is a pleasure to welcome you to Reedley School. I hope you will enjoy looking at the website and finding out why we think Reedley is a special place. To all of us at school, every child really matters. For our pupils and their staff, Reedley is not just a school but a community of enthusiastic learners who find excitement in having challenges. We help and encourage our pupils to be knowledgeable and reflective. We want them to have the confidence and the skills to make their way in the world when they leave us.

Our educational philosophy is based on the provision of high-quality, creative learning opportunities with a view to developing the whole child. We provide a safe, happy and well-disciplined learning environment, which enables our children to acquire a wide range of knowledge, skills and practical abilities.

Parents and carers are vital partners in the work we do. It is important that we build a firm relationship between home and school. During their years at Reedley, we hope that children will enjoy the stimulating and caring environment we create and that their true potential, both socially and academically, is reached. We hope that parents will work with us to make this possible.
