William Ellis School is proud to have partnered with the ZOE/King’s College COVID School Symptom Study.
This not-for-profit initiative supports vital COVID-19 research and has over 4 million contributors globally, making it is the world’s largest ongoing study of COVID-19.
A Schools Study has just been launched and William Ellis was amongst the first 500 schools nationally to register. Please follow this link for further details about how the study works, and about the benefits both to the families who contribute and to us as a school community.
We are asking all parents/carers with sons in Years 7-11 to help us over the next few weeks by downloading the free COVID Symptom Study App (available from the Apple App Store and Google Play) and joining the William Ellis School network. A quick and anonymous daily report on your sons’ health will provide the school with COVID insights, which we anticipate will enable more informed and rapid decision-making to help keep the school community safe.
An FAQ guide for families can be found here
Parents/Carers with a son in Years 7-11 will receive the code to join the school network via the school newsletter in the coming days. We really hope as many parents as possible will download and use the app to help us in our vigilance against COVID-19.
