You will be aware that there are currently difficulties accessing tests for Covid-19 in many of London’s local authorities but we are hoping this will improve in the next few weeks with the new Syon Park test site which is now open for the next 3 months as well as the creation of a larger test site in Feltham which is due to open shortly. We do have a very small number of home test kits in school and from tomorrow we will be able to order another batch.
If your child is at home with covid symptoms waiting for a test or results/tests positive for covid or is self isolating because of a symptomatic family member who is waiting to have a test or tests positive for covid then we will provide home learning but this will not include tutorials or Zoom meetings. In the event of a whole class or year group self isolating due to covid we will then revert to Google Classroom for that class/year group.
I have received a further update from Public Health Hounslow that on Wednesday 16th September and Tuesday 22nd September testing will be carried out at Syon Park and Brentford. Check Hounslow’s website for up to date information on dates for testing in our local area.
Please do not hesitate to contact the team if you need support with accessing a test and we will do our best to assist.
