OVERVIEW OF COVID-19

Key Symptoms of Covid-19

The main symptoms of coronavirus 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

    Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.


    Please remember to keep school informed at all times, regardless of the reason for absence, we need to know where your child is and if we can support you in anyway. Phone the school office on 0121 675 2205 to report any absence, daily.
