  • A lateral flow device (LFD) should not be used on Primary aged children.
  • If your child is displaying symptoms an LFD test cannot be used to clarify if they have COVID.  A PCR test must be taken if a child is displaying symptoms.

Information from Sheffield Family Centres about getting a good night's sleep:

A lack of sleep can cause havoc on children’s behaviour and concentration, as well as have a negative impact on their physical and mental wellbeing.   If you are concerned about children returning to school tired because sleep routines have done out of the window in lockdown, you might find the latest sleep support from Sheffield Parenting Team useful.  

The short videos below give tips and advice on getting sleep back on track.
