Please see below for the three main symptoms that parents and carers should be alert to.
You are strongly advised not to come to school if your child, or anyone in the household, has one or more of these three main symptoms.
We know that there are many coughs, colds and sore throats around and that it can be hard to decide whether children’s symptoms are simply linked to this or whether they are a cause for concern in relation to COVID-19.
Following our recent webinar 'A Guide to Promoting Children's Wellbeing' , led by Achieving for Children (AfC) Educational Psychology Service, please see some useful resources below shared by the service.
Please use the attached poster for guidance if you have concerns that your child may be unwell or injured or be suffering from any medical condition unrelated to the Coronavirus outbreak. It gives very helpful guidance on the course of action you are advised to take . We hope you will find it to be a useful guide for reference.
For current information about the Coronavirus, please check the links shown below.
This page will be updated if the school receives further government guidance and advice.
If you or someone you know needs support or you have queries related to COVID-19, please contact the Community Hub Helpline on 020 8871 6555.

As countries respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, including travel and border restrictions, the FCO advises British nationals against all but essential international travel. Any country or area may restrict travel without notice.
Personal hygiene is the most important way we can tackle COVID-19, especially washing hands more; and the catch it, bin it, kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes.
Wash your hands more often for 20 seconds with soap and hot water.
Watch this short NHS film for guidance:
Teach young children how to wash their hands with the NHS handwashing song:
Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.
