A guide to talking to children about the Coronavirus


The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of a new continuous cough, high temperature (37.8 degrees and above) and/or a loss of, or change in your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia). If you have these symptoms, however mild, stay at home and do not leave your house for 10 days from when your symptoms started (if you live alone), or 14 days (if you live with someone who has symptoms). 


You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation. If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 10 days, contact NHS 111 online.

If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111.

For a medical emergency dial 999. 


The Department of Education has launched a new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

Phone: 0800 046 8687
Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)

Message from the EPS (Educational Psychology Service) Helpline

The EPS helpline for parents will be running over the summer until the 24th August 2020. This will give us the last week of August to ensure that we are able to respond to all calls coming through by the end of August. The helpline was set up as a covid 19 response and as children are returning back to school in September it feels like a natural point to end. We hope that by maintaining over the summer we will be able to continue to offer that support to families as they prepare their children for school.
