COVID-19 Guidance - March 2022

Key changes to guidance

  • Those with COVID symptoms or a positive test should follow  guidance on people with COVID-19 and their contacts and not attend school (note: symptoms relate to the three main symptoms of COVID-19 which are a recent onset of  a high temperature, a new continuous cough and loss, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell).
  • Ensure good hygiene for everyone, maintain appropriate cleaning regimes, keep occupied spaces well ventilated.


The UKHSA guidance is clear that children should not attend school if they have any of the three main symptoms of COVID-19 or test positive for COVID-19 and guidance for parents and carers states ‘Pupils, staff and other adults who have COVID-19 symptoms, should follow guidance on people with COVID-19 and their contacts.’  And ‘If you insist on your child attending nursery, school, or college when they have symptoms, they can take the decision to refuse your child if, in their reasonable judgement, it is necessary to protect other pupils and staff from possible infection with COVID-19.’

Barnardo’s ‘See, Hear, Respond’ service

See, Hear, Respond is a service provided across England by Barnardo’s and other national and local community-based organisations in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

See, Hear, Respond, provides support to children, young people and their families who aren’t currently seeing a social worker or other agency, and who are struggling to cope with the emotional impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19). See, Hear, Respond will support from pre-birth up to 18 years of age and those with special educational needs under the age of 25.

See, Hear, Respond will contact every referral made, so no child is missed. Help is available in one or more of four ways:

  • an online hub of support and information
  • online counselling and therapy
  • face-to-face support for those most affected and at risk of some of today’s most pertinent issues, such as criminal exploitation, and
  • helping children and young people reintegrate back into school

You can access via the ‘See, Hear, Respond’ service self-referral webpage or Freephone 0800 151 7015.
