Dear Families,

Good afternoon. We have confirmation that three staff members tested positive for COVID-19. The staff members were in school during the symptom onset period. 

The national guidance has changed and schools no longer complete contact tracing. We continue to inform the local Public Health England team and Camden Local Authority colleagues.

Please continue to monitor your child’s health for any symptoms of COVID-19.

Lateral flow testing is a good way of monitoring and it is advised to complete twice weekly lateral flow testing at home. Lateral flow test kits are available through this link: https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests and the school wrote to families Friday with the offer of nasal home test kits. Those families that have confirmed will receive their lateral flow test kit today in your child’s bag.

If your child completes a home lateral flow test and the result is positive, please let us know immediately.  We can support you with the next steps. Please be alert for the symptoms of coronavirus which are:  
•    A high temperature
•    A new continuous cough
•    A loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell

If your child develops ANY of the three main symptoms of COVID-19, please let us know. They would need to stay at home and get tested as soon as possible with a PCR test. 

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for your support as we work to keep our school and wider community safe.


Yours Sincerely,

Vijita Patel Mia Dodsworth Rebecca Shaw
Principal Vice Principal Vice Principal
