Important update from Dudley Public Health

The main symptoms of Covid 19 in children are changing all the time.

If your child has any of the following symptoms, we have been advised to request that they have a PCR test, to check if they have Covid. 


  • Sore throats
  • sickness and/or diarrhoea
  • cold like symptoms, including hayfever
  • high temperatures 


We have been advised that Lateral Flow tests should not be done on primary school aged children as they are not reliable in young children


If you do send your child for a PCR test, could you please forward a copy of their results to us in school
