ATTENDANCE, TESTING AND SELF-ISOLATION

 

Our management plan is written with advice from the Local Authority and Local Health Protection teams.

 

  • If a child, or a member of a child’s household, has Covid symptoms, they cannot attend school.  They must remain at home and self-isolate.  Other members of the household must also remain at home and self-isolate. This includes siblings who attend Morden Mount Primary School or another school.

 

  • If a child shows Covid symptoms at school, then we will move them to a separate room and contact their parent/carer. They must be collected as soon as possible.

 

 

  • If the test is negative then the isolation for the household can end.

 

  • If the test is positive, then the school must be contacted and we will discuss the next steps with our Local Health Protection Team.


The NHS currently lists the following symptoms:

  • a 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
