COVID-19

Here you will find the latest advice and news around school arrangements at this time.

What to do if my child is ill

Students should not attend school if they or a close contact have symptoms, been contacted by track and trace and told to self-isolate or have tested positive for Coronavirus. You should contact the  school attendance officer or your child's Head of Year on the morning of the first days absence to discuss the matter.

The main symptoms of Coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back and your temperature may be above 37.8C
  • 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)
  • 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

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms

Attendance Guidance

If students have been absent from school due to self-isolating and are awaiting tests results for themselves or a family member/close contact please note that we require confirmation of the result prior to the student’s return.

You can email a copy of the result to stuservices@newfield.sheffield.sch.uk  Alternatively, students should have evidence on their phone to show to student reception as they come into school for the first time.
