COVID-19

As a precaution, we are asking all parents and guardians be alert to any symptoms of COVID-19:

  •  A new or continuous cough
  •  A high temperature
  •  A loss of or change to sense of smell or taste

If your child develops any of these symptoms, even if they are mild:

  • Book a test for them by phoning 119 or through the online portal: https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test
  • Inform King Henry School absence line (01873 735345) that they are unwell with COVID-19 symptoms and that you have requested a test and follow the below chart

To reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading, there are things that everyone in your family can do to help. These include:

  • Washing hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • Using hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • Washing hands as soon as they get home
  • Covering their mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve (not their hands) when they cough or sneeze
  • Putting used tissues in the bin immediately and washing hands afterwards
