News - Coronavirus
If a member of your household tests positive for Covid-19 please let the school know immediately either by phoning and speaking to someone – 020 8660 4863 – or emailing: email@example.com
This is particularly important if you receive a result over the weekend.
Risk Assessment and Action Plan, Flowchart and Covid Catch Up
From the 8th March, we saw restrictions start to lift and the government’s four-step roadmap offer a route back to, we all hope, a more 'normal' life. While we must all remain vigilant - in particular against the threat from new COVID-19 variants - and continue to protect the NHS and each other, a safe exit from lockdown can be read, here and more recently (July 2021), here and at the Gov.UK website.
Please remember: wash hands, cover face, make space.
The latest guidance is available on the government website – gov.uk/coronavirus and we update our school website regularly. You can find information under the News and Dates tab/News.
If you have any concerns about this period of time, please speak to the school or contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help. Above all, please do stay safe.
