If your child has been told to isolate due to a positive case within their class you must isolate them for 10 days, even if they don't display any symptoms.

Your child should not attend any out of school provision, childcare, activity groups or clubs during this time. They must stay at home and not go out into public during this time.

The rest of the household does not need to isolate unless someone in the household develops symptoms. This means that any siblings can still go to school.
