Parent Advice and Support

(Information will be updated regularly) 

Lateral Flow Testing

If your child has any COVID-19 symptoms you must book a test at a test site. Lateral Flow tests are not designed to be used on children who have symptoms, they are to detect A-Symptomatic COVID- cases.


Here you will find advice and support about:

  • Local services, charities and groups which can support families with food and activity packs.
  • Wellbeing advice for both parents/carers and children.   
  • We are still working closely with our school Counsellor Carol McLachian to give advice and support to families.


 If you need any support please get in touch via school office - ring between 8:00am-4:00pm or email enquiries@diamondhallinfantacademy.co.uk F.A.O Parent Support and a member of staff will make sure they get back in touch with you.
