Please keep your child at home if they are unwell. If your child or anyone in your house has a temperature or continuous, dry cough, you should get a test by ringing 119 or apply online here. 8pm in the evening is often a good time to apply. While you are waiting for a test, everyone in your house should isolate.
Please let us know when you get a test result back.
