Government advice in England has changed on 1 April 2022.
If you have symptoms of Covid-19, you are no longer required to do a rapid lateral flow or PCR test.
If your child has mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat or mild cough, and they feel well enough, they can go to school.
If your child develops Covid-like symptoms and has either high temperature or is not well enough to go to school:
Keep them at home and avoid contact with other people
- They can return to school when they feel well enough and they don’t have a high temperature
