Dear Headteacher Colleagues,

From 31st March, the Government are withdrawing all current advice to schools in relation to COVID-19 and as such, my role as Education Adviser (COVID-19) is also coming to an end.

H&F will no longer be asking schools to notify us of every positive case. Instead, and as with any other queries about other infectious diseases, Elizabeth Naylor, our Head of Infection Prevention & Control ( is available to offer advice where needed.

For any enquiries on workplace thermal environment, please contact:    

Having worked so closely with many of you over the past two years, I am confident that the best practice of ensuring good respiratory and hand hygiene, maintaining appropriate cleaning regimes, and keeping classrooms well ventilated will carry on going forward.

Schools have risen to the challenge that this pandemic created whilst continuing to champion good quality education for all the children and will no doubt continue to do so. Although I will be leaving the Education Service, I will stay at H&F for a while longer as I am moving into Public Health Commissioning and may cross paths with you again.

I wish everyone a restful Easter Break and I am grateful to have learned so much working with you all.

Best wishes and warmest regards,

Tahirah De Aguiar Chaves

Education Adviser

Children’s Services

Hammersmith & Fulham Council
