As children return to class many schools, including Brooklands, are experiencing higher than usual numbers of pupils with colds and sore throats. In the absence of definitive advice from the Department of Education we recommend that if your child has a heavy cold they should be kept at home until they are well enough to return to school.
If your child is displaying Covid-19 symptoms they should not attend school. The decision on whether a child requires a Covid-19 test rests with parents who should seek advice from their family doctor or the Public Health Agency.
In the event of your child being absent from school there is work relevant to their class topic on Education City and reading resources are available on your child’s Bug Club account.
