How to report a COVID-19 case

If you have a case to report, please contact the school on 0116 271 4941. 

Please note: voicemail, email or School Gateway messages should only be used to confirm details of a conversation held between parents and staff.

Please report immediately:

  • any child with symptoms
  • any tests taken by your child or others in your household
  • any test results 

Your child should stay off school:

  • if your child display symptoms
  • if anyone in the household displays symptoms
  • while awaiting a test result
  • if there is a positive a test result in your household
  • if they have been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive
  • if they have been advised to self-isolate

Please help us reduce the risk for all by:


  • Self-isolation means your child must remain at home both during the school week and during weekends. 
  • They shouldn’t be taking part in any activities such as sport during this self-isolation period or coming into contact with anyone outside of their home. 
  • Your child should also remain at home while taking other children within the household to school.
  • Your child must stay at home for 10 days. This is because it can take several days before an individual develops symptoms, or the virus can be detected. 
  • If a child has been identified as a contact, a negative test result does not mean they can return to school earlier.

Note: although the whole family doesn’t have to self-isolate unless your child themselves develops symptoms, you may wish to take extra care during this period, especially to minimise contact you have with older relatives.
