Lateral Flow Testing

Lateral Flow Tests are only used to identify cases of COVID –19 in people who are asymptomatic (do not have symptoms).

Many staff and families use Lateral Flow Tests twice weekly to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (one third of people with COVID-19 have no symptoms).

Anyone in the Waltham Forest community can take part in asymptomatic testing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 take a look here to find more information about using Community Collect to pick up your Lateral Flow Home Testing Kits.

Family support, advice and guidance

 Support with accessing food

If your child is eligible for free school meals and/or you are worried about having enough food, please contact the school office by phone or email (details above) so that we can support you. The school will work with you to ensure that all support is discretely provided. Our normal support for families in this situation may include weekly food parcels, food vouchers, or a referral to the local foodbank.  

We know that sometimes families are faced with unexpected difficulties when the school is closed. During these times families can contact the school via email on: school@chapelend-inf.waltham.sch.uk and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can find information on getting support with food and financial problems on the Waltham Forest Council website.

Mental Health and Well Being

The impact of Coronavirus and the restrictions in place for our safety can place additional strain on our mental health and well-being, but please know that there is lots of support available. http://www.chapelendinfants.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=47724&action=edit
