Covid 19 Guidelines Update


From 4 January 2022, it is recommended that face coverings should be worn by staff and students when moving around the premises, in corridors and communal areas and in classrooms or workshops.

Teachers are not ordinarily expected to wear a face covering whilst teaching students if they are at the front of the class, to support education delivery, although settings should be sensitive to the needs of individual teachers. (This is a temporary measure and may be changed again.)

We also encourage you continue to test twice weekly at home, with lateral flow device (LFD) test kits, 3 to 4 days apart and report your results on the links below.

  1. The NHS Test & Trace self-report website and
  2. The Hillingdon Adult and Community Learning lateral flow result reporting form

This privacy statement explains how Hillingdon Adult and Community Learning will use the data you submit on the reporting form.



COVID-19 Self isolation update

by Isha Arora -
 From Monday 17 January, COVID-19 self isolation is being reduced to five full days.


From Monday 17 January, people who are self-isolating with COVID-19 will have the option to reduce their isolation period after 5 full days if they test negative with a lateral flow device (LFD) test on both day 5 and day 6 and they do not have a temperature. For example, if they test negative on the morning of day 5 and the morning of day 6, they can return to their education or childcare setting immediately on day 6.

The first test must be taken no earlier than day 5 of the self-isolation period, and the second must be taken the following day. All test results should be reported to NHS Test and Trace.

If the result of either of their tests is positive, they should continue to self-isolate until they get negative results from two LFD tests on consecutive days or until they have completed 10 full days of self-isolation, whichever is earliest.

Anyone who is unable to take LFD tests or anyone who continues to have a temperature will need to complete the full 10 day period of self-isolation.
