SCHOOL REOPENING AND CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

January 2022 Update:

Onsite teaching at Camberwell Leisure Centre will continue as per government guidelines with measures in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Only mandatory meetings will be conducted onsite.

Testing remains important in reducing the risk of transmission of infection within our school. We continue to take regular rapid tests to assist in identifying infections early and reducing transmission. This includes lateral flow tests (LFT) for Covid-19 administered onsite 2 days a week as part of NHS Test and Trace. The Principal’s letter to parents/carers regarding this can be found here: RE: NHS Test and Trace: COVID-19 testing for students

We have conducted a Risk Assessment for reopening onsite teaching (found here). We continue to reassess and update following government guidelines.

We will continue updating this page daily. You may need to refresh your browser to see any changes.

We ask that you continue to keep up to date with advice from the NHS and the Government, particularly if anyone in your household is clinically extremely vulnerable.

It is more important more than ever to look after your mental health. The Nest in Peckham offers 1-2-1 support over the phone, online and in person. Please check out their website to get access to help and support.

After their period of isolation, your child can return straight back to school.
