In line with Government guidance, students will return to school from w/c Monday 8th March. This will be a phased return and further details will be issued shortly. This phased return of students is to allow us to carry out the necessary Lateral Flow Testing on all pupils as stipulated by the DFE.
In order to return to school safely, whilst minimising the spread of Covid-19, all secondary school students will be tested three times upon returning to school from Monday 8th March 2021. After an initial programme of three tests in school, students will be provided with two rapid tests to use each week at home. Staff in secondary schools will also be supplied with test kits to self swab and test themselves twice a week at home.
Further information on Lateral Flow Testing can be found here.
The latest information from the Government on returning to school can be found here.
In order to be tested, students MUST provide parental / guardian consent. Students who do not consent cannot be tested. Please do so by completing this online consent form.
We will be in contact with you with further details about your child's return to school. In the meantime, if you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
