As a school, nothing is more important to us than the safety of the children who come to learn here and our staff who work here. Below you will find lots of information on what we are doing to keep the community safe and also some other useful resources from various agencies.
The most important symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 however mild, self-isolate for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. You should arrange to have a test to see if you have COVID-19 – go to testing to arrange. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
If your child has a sibling it is important that they also remain at home to isolate.
Got coronavirus symptoms? Get tested now.
There is a range of local testing options available to you, including a Mobile Testing Site with a mixture of walk-through and drive-through appointments for more information please click here.
NHS Test and Trace is an essential part of the Government’s response to stopping the spread of coronavirus and to save lives. Get tested and do your bit to protect your friends and family.
Claiming financial support under the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme
If you have symptoms of coronavirus, you should stay at home and self-isolate immediately to stop the spread of the virus and protect family, friends and your community. It’s vital that you play your part and follow the rules around self-isolation.
If you’re asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace and you’re on a low income, unable to work from home and will lose income as a result, you may be entitled to a payment of £500 from your local authority under the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme.
The scheme will run until 31 January 2021.
17 May: What’s changed:
Restrictions have been eased following the move to step 3. However we must continue to exercise caution. You should follow this guidance on what you can and cannot do. It is underpinned by law and applies across England.
You should also follow the guidance on how to stop the spread of coronavirus at all times, including if you have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
You should continue to work from home if you can. When travelling within the UK, you should aim to do so safely and plan your journey in advance.

Step Up For Hounslow!
Here is some new information for you to share please, as part of our ‘Step Up For Hounslow!’ campaign.
· Around 35,000 people have ‘Stepped up’ by getting vaccinated in the first two weeks of the five-week Surge testing and increased vaccination programme. The figure of 35,930 includes first and second doses and brings Hounslow’s total vaccinations tally to more than 251,000 vaccines administered, of which around 157,000 are first doses.
· Council staff (carrying I.D) are door-knocking in the Feltham and Bedfont areas of the borough, delivering PCR test kits and leaving letters with information and details of support for anyone not at home.
· There are now even more places where residents can access a PCR test too, including Heston Library, Bedfont Library and Isleworth Library as well as more Mobile Testing Units – please see table below. Locations and opening hours for pop-up vaccination sites and PCR test sites are regularly updated on the Council’s website at: www.hounslow.gov.uk/surge
· Local radio adverts will begin later this week to encourage everyone to ‘Step up’ as part of the Surge PCR testing and increased vaccination programme – the sooner you get PCR tested and vaccinated the less likely you will be to miss the opportunity to benefit from the increased resource in the borough.
· Testing is not a one-off, it is important that residents regularly get tested with LFT ‘rapid tests’ going forward, even those residents who have been vaccinated.
