Welcome to our school's website

Dear Parents, Carers and Visitors,

On behalf of the governors and staff, I would like to welcome to Cayley Primary School. I hope that you enjoy browsing our website, and you experience for yourself the exciting learning environment and educational opportunities we offer. We are a county primary school, maintained by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

We are a happy and healthy school and believe that everyone should be valued for his or her individuality, culture and heritage and that they are encouraged to achieve their full potential in a stimulating, challenging and caring environment and we’re only able to achieve this through a strong partnership between home and school. We will help our children to achieve their potential as a member of our school community where all children are respected and valued.

By working together, your child will leave Cayley with a life-long love of learning and well prepared for the challenges ahead.

If you would like to visit our school, please make an appointment with the office and we will be pleased to show you around.

Mrs Lissa Samuel - Headteacher

Nick Paul MBE - Chair of Governors

If you would like your child(ren) to come to school and you fall within one of the above categories please email schoolclosure@cayley.towerhamlets.sch.uk.

Public Health England has updated their guidance for households with possible coronavirus (COVID-19) infection

Public Health England has published guidance for households with grandparents, parents and children living together where someone is at risk or has symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.

The guidance can be found here:

Coronavirus (COVID-19) testing eligibility and how to book

Testing is available to anyone in England and Wales who has symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), whatever their age. Tests are free and can be requested through the NHS website.

Priority testing is available for essential workers and anyone they live with who display symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), this includes all education and childcare staff. Priority testing can be arranged through the self-referral portal on GOV.​UK. Apply for a coronavirus test if you’re an essential worker.

Plans for all children and young people to return to full-time education at the start of the autumn term

The guidance for the full opening of schools, early years and colleges at the start of the autumn can be found here:

Covid Summer Food Fund

The Covid Summer Food Fund will enable children who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals (FSM) to be supported over the summer holiday period. All vouchers for the summer holidays must be ordered at least one week before your school’s summer term ends. The costs will be met centrally by the Department for Education.

Please read the guidance in full before ordering to ensure your orders are processed correctly.


Department for Education coronavirus helpline

The Department for Education coronavirus helpline is available to answer questions about COVID-19 relating to education and children’s social care. Staff, parents and young people can contact this helpline as follows:

Phone: 0800 046 8687
Opening hours:
8am to 6pm – Monday to Friday
10am to 4pm – Saturday and Sunday

If you work in a school, please have your unique reference number (URN or UK PRN) available when calling the hotline.

Handwashing advice

It is essential that everyone washes their hands more often, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Hand washing with soap employs mechanical action that loosens bacteria and viruses from the skin, rinsing them into the drain. Drying hands afterwards makes the skin less hospitable to the virus. Hand sanitiser can be effective if soap is not available or the situation makes using soap less feasible (i.e. when outside) but using hand sanitiser provides none of the virus-destroying friction that rubbing your hands together and rinsing with water provides.

The latest guidance and video on hand washing can be found at:

The e-Bug project is led by Public Health England and has a dedicated webpage for learning resources on hand washing and respiratory hygiene.

Resources are currently available for KS1, KS2 and KS3 and can be used in various settings including schools and at home:
