Covid-19 (Information for parents/carers)


If a member of your household tests positive for Covid-19 please let the school know immediately either by phoning and speaking to someone –  020 8689 7681 – or emailing: support@elmwood-inf.croydon.sch.uk
This is particularly important if you receive a result over the weekend.

The English government has released the free NHS Covid-19 app, which helps protect both our school and our wider community. It works on modern Apple and Android (Google, Samsung etc.) smart phones to detect anonymously if you have had close contact with someone who has tested positive for covid-19, which helps prevent the spread of the virus.
For more information on how the app works and to download please visit https://covid19.nhs.uk/
