The self-isolation advice for people with coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed. It is now possible to end self-isolation after 5 full days if you have 2 negative LFD tests taken on consecutive days. The first LFD test should not be taken before the fifth day after your symptoms started (or the day your test was taken if you did not have symptoms). The self-isolation period remains 10 full days for those without negative results from 2 LFD tests taken a day apart.

Desert Oasis Playground Plans
We are currently planning for renovations of the top playground at Elm Grove. The concept is ‘Desert Oasis’. The design is an interpretation of a desert landscape with elements of rock, and water, with a nod to treasure islands, riverbed oasis, obstacle course etc.
This project will mainly be funded by the PTA.
At Elm Grove our main line of communication to parents and carers is SchoolPing. To request your SchoolPing log-in details please contact the school office.
