Camden and Islington Public Health have provided advice relating to actions when pupils have COVID symptoms and sharing information between schools


  1. Actions when pupils have COVID symptoms


If a parent thinks their child has potential COVID symptoms and the parent rings the test helpline and after going through the checklist, the clinician concludes the pupil does not have the COVID symptoms and does not need a test, where does this leave the school, who think that they might be infected? Do the school let the pupil(s) back into school or suggest that they self-isolate?


Schools are required to protect their staff and pupils by rigorously applying the rules on excluding and testing anyone who falls into the case definition. I.e. a person having any of the three key symptoms.

  1. a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature) A temperature above 38C is normally considered to be high.
  2. 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)
  3. 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 a school hears that a child has any of the three symptoms, that child should self isolate for 10 days and their siblings and other members of the household for 14 days, until there is either:

  1. A negative test result
  2. A doctor’s note explaining that the symptom is not COVID-19 (e.g. the cough is not a “new” cough – i.e. is typical of the child’s pre-existing health condition)


If the parent has only been told by 111 that they do not need to get tested but still has one of the three COVID symptoms, then the schools can request a GP note to confirm this information.


If the parent is not able to provide a negative test result OR a doctor’s letter, the child should complete the 10 day isolation period (as a symptomatic person) and the household completes 14 day isolation (as household contacts).
