Please keep your child home if they are unwell

The following is advice from the Ministry of Education, supported by the Ministry of Health.

If your child has cold or flu symptoms, you are asked to keep them at home and call your doctor or Healthline on 0800 358 5453 for advice.

These symptoms include:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature of at least 38°C
  • shortness of breath
  • sore throat
  • sneezing and runny nose
  • temporary loss of smell.

If you have any of these symptoms, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have COVID-19. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as colds and flu.

We also ask that you keep your child at home until they are symptom free. This will help keep our school community healthy.

We thank you for your support with this.
