Covid-19 Information


Please find below information about Coronavirus (COVID-19) and advice from the Government relating to Walkley Primary School.


We will be posting any relevant information on here as well as sending out emails.


For your information, the legal requirement to isolate if your child tests positive for Covid has been removed. However, the current guidance brought into effect from Friday 1st April 2022, still recommends that if a Child under 18 years of age tests positive they should remain at home for 3 days. This starts from the day after the first positive test.


Coronavirus symptoms remain:

  • a high temperature (above 37.8C)
  • a new continuous cough
  • 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.


The day of a positive test result is day 0, children are still required to remain at home for 3 days after the initial test day:

Day 0: First Positive Test Day

Day 1: Isolating

Day 2: Isolating

Day 3 Isolating

Day 4: Can return to school if well enough


Key protections to be kept in place:

We have a school risk assessment in place which is in line with Sheffield City Council's guidance. Risk assessments change frequently and will be uploaded when new ones are released. The latest risk assessment is attached to the bottom of this page. 


If they have any of these symptoms, they should stay at home until they are feeling better. You may wish to test your child.


If your child develops any of these symptoms whilst they are at school, you will be contacted and they will be sent home.
