What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID-19

If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they should get a test and remain at home and wait for the test result. Siblings should also remain at home if they are also exhibiting symptoms, they too should get tested.

Anyone with symptoms will be eligible for testing and this can be arranged via or by calling 119.

A positive result means the person must stay at home for 14 days from the first day they showed symptoms

Household members of someone who tests positive should also get a test and stay at home for 14 days, this will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community

If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period


The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:

  • new continuous cough and/or
  • high temperature
  • a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

If your child or anyone in the household does develop symptoms, you can seek advice from NHS 111 at or by phoning 111.



How to stop COVID-19 spreading

There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19



  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards

We would love to have you join us next academic year and we’d usually have a wonderful Open Evening so we can show you around our lovely school and for you to meet our staff and students. Unfortunately this year it has to be a bit different. Please see the details below of what we can offer you instead:

It is really important you know how to apply to us; it is a different application process to other non faith schools. Our Application workshops will give you all the information and advice you need and there will be a chance to ask us any questions you may have. We will be limiting our numbers to 30 visitors per session (2 tickets per household – 1 being the Year 6 pupil) and the sessions will be held at St Paul’s at the allocated time.

There be an opportunity to meet the Principal, Head of Year 7 and the school SENCo.

Please click on the link below to book onto one of our sessions:
The St Paul’s application form can be downloaded via the link below and the form can be completed on the evening. Please ensure that you bring the relevant faith verification with you.

BTEC contacted all schools last night to ask that the we do not issue the BTEC grades.

They plan to review them and reissue them to students as soon as possible.  The grades on the slip for BTEC and the Cambridge Nationals for Sport therefore are provisional.

New BTEC grades will be sent as soon as school receives them.

We will start to get students back into school and into their new year groups gradually between 1st-4th September. Students therefore will return on the following dates:

Tuesday 1st September – Years 7 & 12
Wednesday 2nd September – Years 8 & 11
Thursday 3rd September – Years 10 & 13
Friday 4th September – Year 9

Once students return to school, they should attend every day.

Years 12 & 13 will not be required to attend on Friday 4th September in order that we can fully induct Year 9, our biggest year group. Year 12 & 13 will be given work to complete at home on this day.

ALL students will be in school from Monday 7th September.
