Covid-19 Information

Please refer to the Government's latest advice or the NHS website. (All School documents regarding coronavirus can be found at the bottom of this page.)


If you or your child are showing any symptoms related to Covid-19, please refer to the NHS and Government guidance (please see the links above). Some children may be displaying mild cold-like symptoms which are not consistent with the NHS guidance re Covid-19.  If this is the case, parents need to decide whether their child is fit enough to attend school or whether they need to rest at home for a period of time.  However, if your child is displaying any of the symptoms outlined on the NHS link above then you must keep your child off school and organise a COVID test as soon as possible.

In the event of absence due to COVID, please email with the subject title COVID-19 or directly to covid@hillsgrove.bexley.sch.uk.

  • By entering our site, you agree that you are fit and well without symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Tours will only take place by appointment
  • All visitors must sign in on arrival
  • All visitors must follow current guidance. 
  • Visitors must use Anti-Bacterial Gel on arrival. Hygiene and hand-washing precautions must be followed at all times.
