If your child is sent home with any signs relating to COVID, please can you arrange a test for them and provide the school with the results of these tests (firstname.lastname@example.org)
There is a Rapid Covid-19 Walk-through testing site at Lord Street Car Park, Gravesend, DA12 1ER which is open everyday 8am to 8pm. Please see the government website to arrange this at; www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or telephone 0300 303 2713
Whilst on school grounds, we urge all parents/carers to wear face masks. You must wear face masks when entering any of the school building, which includes the lobby area to the Office. Many thanks for your continued support and understanding at this difficult time.
Please see below government guideline information which has come from their website.
From September we will have introduced a new way in which you can report in your child’s illness.
Study Bugs allows you to send a message to the school to let us know why your child is off with sickness. It also gives you advice From Public Health England on the need to stay off school, based on the symptoms or illnesses you enter.
Note: Studybugs does not provide medical advice or diagnosis — please consult your GP for this.
Its helps the school to track any illnesses that are in the local area. Your personal data is kept strictly confidential between you and your child’s school. We never share your personal data with third parties. You can access Study Bugs by down loading the app or logging into the website https://studybugs.com/about/parents
