Dear Parents, Carers, and Families,

We hope this finds you well and safe. We are excited to share that our school is working in partnership with Camden Local Authority to become a designated ‘Trauma Informed Practice’ school.

We recognise the importance of this approach within our classrooms as we integrate the impacts of the pandemic through the Recovery Curriculum.

Our Spring and Summer Term training programmes for all staff are dedicated to key themes to embed the focus on mental and emotional wellbeing.

We are also working with Camden Local Authority to access their plan to extend the Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) programme into local schools.

Our school has found the PBS model very supportive for families that have accessed this programme through specialist services for their child.

The core principles of PBS link to our curriculum’s aims and our school ethos.

There are two free sessions being held next week for families and carers to learn more about PBS.

Update: Positive Case of COVID-19 following Positive Lateral Flow Test Result

A member of staff that did not have symptoms tested positive during a lateral flow ‘asymptomatic’ test this morning. This led to a full PCR COVID-19 test which confirmed that they were positive for COVID-19.

We are working closely with the London Coronavirus Response Cell and Camden & Islington Public Health Teams. The pupils and staff from the class have moved into self-isolation at home in line with the national guidance.

Please continue to monitor your child and family for symptoms due to the ongoing pandemic.If your child develops any symptoms, please contact the school and we can support you.The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
