PHE data show up to 50% reduction in transmission of COVID from first vaccine. 3 implications: 1) Getting a vaccine helps protect others 2) This is likely to be improved by getting your second dose 3) If people you meet are vaccinated it reduces your risk- but not completely. https://t.co/5ost4UcjhS

Covid-19 Updates For Parents

For the latest updates from the school relating to Covid-19 please also see our Letters Home pages.


Update: 15th March 2021

Covid Testing at Home

Dear Parents and Carers

Can I thank you for supporting us by granting consent for your child/ward to be regularly tested for Covid-19 using the lateral flow tests.

As you know we have been carrying the tests out at school until now. All secondary aged students will be offered tests to take at home twice a week, so that we can reduce the spread of the virus. The tests have now arrived at the Academy and will be given to your child/ward to bring home during the week commencing 15th March 2021.

Up to one in three people who have COVID-19 can spread the virus without knowing. This is because they have no symptoms. To reduce the spread of the virus, we need to identify those individuals. We can do this in schools by carrying out tests at home twice every week. 

Each student will receive two packs containing three tests per pack.  Full instructions on how to take the tests and report the results are included in each pack.

The result of each test needs to be reported using the NHS Test & Trace self-report website.

Click HERE to report the result to NHS Test and Trace.

Students will also need to tell the school the result of each test. This is done via a quick and easy to complete form found on our website. 

Click HERE to complete the simple form and report the result to the school.

If a student has a positive test result, they will need to stay home and self-isolate. If the result of the test is unclear (void) they will need to do another one. Students have the option to take the test the evening before school, but no earlier. Test results should always be reported.

We are delighted that so many of our students have agreed to take part in the national testing programme and all students will be able to attend the Academy whether they take part in testing or not. I am strongly encouraging all students to take part and I thank you once again for granting your consent and helping to protect our Academy community.

Thank you for your continuing support.

Yours sincerely

Nick Soar, Executive Principal


Pupil absence – symptoms of Covid-19

If want to inform us that you or your child has a positive COVID test or that you are self-isolating because you or your child has symptoms of COVID-19, please contact Ms Parsley, Attendance Officer on 020 3772 4243. Press option 1 for student absence. Leave a voicemail message clearly stating your child’s full name, year and tutor group, date of birth, reason for absence and date of first symptoms if relevant. Alternatively, please email: attendance@harristottenham.org.uk with subject heading COVID alert.


National Guidance on Coronavirus

Symptoms of coronavirus

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:

  • new continuous cough and/or
  • high temperature
  • a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.


What to do if someone in your household develops symptoms of COVID-19 

If someone in your household develops symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared.

All other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. 

The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.

Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home. 

Household members staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community.

If you are able, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period.

If your child or anyone in the household does develop symptoms, you can seek advice from NHS 111 at: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/ or by phoning 111.


How to stop COVID-19 spreading

There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19. Do:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards

Government guidance

The government has now published its final guidance on the wider re-opening of schools. You can read the latest government guidence HERE.
