Coronavirus: key information

Reporting a positive COVID test

As of Thursday 24th February 2022, the government guidance on the legal requirement to self-isolate following a positive COVID-19 test has been removed. Students who test positive for COVID-19 will continue to be advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days following a positive COVID test. After three days they can resume normal activities and attend school providing they feel well and do not have a temperature. Close contacts will no longer be required to test daily or isolate.

If your child tests positive for COVID-19 and too ill to attend school, you should report their absence daily to the school in the same way as any other illness absence. You should report the absence by calling the attendance officer on 0207 313 5800 (ext. 1) before 8.30am on each day of absence and leave a message including your child’s full name and year group. 

If a child/children are isolating due to COVID-19, work will be provided via Google Classroom.

Further information about COVID-19 isolation and testing can be found on the NHS website at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/when-to-self-isolate-and-what-to-do/

Home Testing

From Thursday 24th February 2022, the DfE will no longer be providing home test kits for twice weekly asymptomatic testing in schools and you will need to secure COVID tests via a local pharmacy if your child is unwell with symptoms.
