The HSE has published guidelines for parents in the form of a poster on when to seek advice from a GP and
when it is all right to send a child to school.

When to keep your child at home and phone your GP

Do not send your child to school or childcare if any of the following is true.

Your child has:

  • a temperature of 38 degrees Celsius or more
  • any other common symptoms of coronavirus such as a new cough, loss or changed sense of taste or smell, or
    shortness of breath
  • been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus
  • been living with someone who is unwell and may have coronavirus

You will need to:

1. Isolate your child. This means keeping them at home and completely avoiding contact with other people, as much as possible.
Your child should only leave your home to have a test or to see your GP.

2. Phone your GP. They will advise you if your child needs a coronavirus test.

3. Everyone that your child lives with should also restrict their movements, at least until your child gets a diagnosis from

their GP or a coronavirus test result. This means not going to school, childcare or work.

4. Treat your child at home for their symptoms.

When it’s okay to send your child to school or childcare

It’s usually okay to send your child to school or childcare if they:

  • only have nasal symptoms, such as a runny nose or a sneeze
  • do not have a temperature of 38 degrees Celsius or more (as long as their temperature has not been lowered by
    taking any form of paracetamol or ibuprofen)
  • do not have a cough
  • have not been in close contact with anyone who has coronavirus
  • do not live with anyone who is unwell and may have coronavirus
  • have been told by a GP that their illness is caused by something else, that is not coronavirus. Your GP will tell you
    when they can return to school or childcare
  • have got a negative (‘not detected’) coronavirus test result and have not had symptoms for 48 hours

Most of the time, you do not need to phone your GP if a runny nose or sneezing are your child’s only symptoms.
Talk to your pharmacist instead.

The Government has also published advice in the form of FAQs for parents around all aspects of returning to school
for their children.  This website might help alleviate any forms of COVID-19 anxieties among parents and children
in relation to school.  The web page is at

Welcome

A very warm welcome to the school website of St. Brigid’s B.N.S. We hope you find our website full of

up to date news, views and photographs.

The aim of our school is to create a welcoming, secure and caring environment which facilitates the nurturing

of each pupil’s full potential. The achievement of this aim informs all of the planning processes and activities in our

school.  We endeavour to provide as broad a schedule of activities for our boys as possible in order to give each child

every opportunity to develop his own unique talents. We encourage every pupil to engage fully with the curriculum

as our dedicated teachers and staff work together with parents/guardians to ensure each child is afforded the

opportunity to learn and grow. Teachers and parents share the same aim as partners in education – the wellbeing

of the boys in our care.


As you will see we are a very busy school. 

Enjoy your visit. Bain taitneamh as do chuairt.

Self-isolation means staying indoors and completely avoiding contact with other people. This includes other people in
your household, as much as possible. It applies to people with proven or suspected COVID-19.

Restricting movement means avoiding contact with other people and social situations as much as possible. It applies to
those who are without symptoms but considered at higher risk of developing COVID-19 because they were exposed to
a particular risk.
