It is essential that any pupil who has COVID-19 symptoms, does not attend the school and follows the WG self-isolation guidance.
We have had confirmation from TTP that although close contacts are not required to self-isolate if they are fully vaccinated and under 18, in Cardiff we will strongly encourage close contacts not to attend any educational setting and book a Covid test for day 2 and day 8.
Please ensure that you inform the school if your child tests positive.
The main symptoms of COVID-19 are: 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.
IF YOUR CHILD IS ILL PLEASE DO NOT BRING THEM TO SCHOOL
