Covid-19 Support

Following the move to Step 4 of the roadmap on Monday 19 July, we are no longer operating a system of bubbles. However controls to reduce the risk of transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) remain paramount in our school as COVID-19 becomes a virus that we learn to live with. It is now an imperative to reduce the disruption to children and young people’s education. On a regular basis, our Control Measures document is reviewed by our Senior Leadership Team to ensure our control measures are proportionate. Any amendments are signed off by the Chair of Governors.

We continue to follow Government guidance and local best practice as advised by the Director of Public Health for the London Borough of Bexley.

If you or your child develop any symptoms, it is crucial that you isolate until you have the results of a PCR test. If your result is positive, please isolate for the ten days from the day your symptoms began.

Children and vaccinated adults not displaying symptoms do not need to self isolate whilst waiting for results of a PCR test. Asymptomatic children should be brought to school by an asymptomatic adult.
