School reopening: responding to a suspected case of COVID-19 in school
Download our flowchart outlining the steps to take if a pupil or staff member develops coronavirus symptoms in your school.
16 September: we updated the flowchart to include some more details you may find useful, based on the DfE's guide to dealing with a symptomatic pupil (link below). None of the advice is new, so if you've been using the previous version of our flowchart, you've still been fully compliant.
3 September: we updated the flowchart to include more detail about self-isolation and ending self-isolation, in line with the latest version of the DfE's full opening guidance.

It's based on the DfE's full opening guidance and step-by-step guide to dealing with a symptomatic pupil (both available here), but you'll need to adapt it where highlighted to suit your school's context and procedures.
Once adapted, share it with all of your staff to use as a reference document.
