Coronavirus Advice

If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), you can ask for a test to check if you have the virus.
 

You can ask for a test:
 

  • for yourself, if you have coronavirus symptoms now (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
     
  • for someone you live with, if they have coronavirus symptoms

 

The test usually involves taking a swab of the inside of the nose and the back of your throat, using a long cotton bud.
 

You can do the swab yourself (if you are aged 12 or over) or someone can do it for you. Children aged 11 or under cannot do the swab themselves. A parent or guardian will have to swab test them.

Information about Covid 19 Hardship funding  

 

We understand that during these very difficult times, many families may be experiencing extra financial strain. This may be because of a cut to normal working hours or loss of employment. Some families may be experiencing delays or disruption to benefits etc. 

 

As a school, we are continuing to support all our families as much as possible. We have been notified by the authority that  families who are experiencing hardship as a direct result of Covid 19, may be able to access support for things such as buying food and basic essentials, and paying emergency bills such as internet access, gas and electric. It may also be possible that the funding could be used for buying essential white goods in the event yours should break/not work efficiently.   

 

If you feel that you are  having any difficulties because of the on-going impact of Covid 19, please contact Mrs Baxter via email a.baxter@deykinav.bham.sch.uk to discuss the possible support available. 

 

Please be advised we would need to send a referral to the authority to access support. Therefore, you would need to provide details of how you have been affected and the difficulties that you are experiencing, along with what support you are requesting i.e buying food etc. You will also need to provide some personal details such as your bank account details. This information will be held in the strictest confidence and only shared with the authority.
