Symptomatic Students In The UK At A School


We are liaising with schools to ensure that appropriate and contingent isolation plans and facilities for students who present with COVID 19 symptoms whilst at school are in place. Current UK Government advice via Public Health England is that a symptomatic student is not permitted to be moved from their household. Whilst at school the students “boarding house” is classified as their household and therefore following the above guidance it is not possible or right to place a symptomatic student into a host family.

It is expected that Schools will follow Public Health England, Safe Schools UK advice and the BSA Charters and provide isolation on school premises for any symptomatic students.

We will continue to update this information in line with changes here in the UK.
