Covid-19 Updates

Please see here for an important letter form the Principal:

The main messages continue as:

  1. Ensure good hygiene for everyone
  2. Maintain appropriate cleaning regimes
  3. Keep occupied spaced well ventilated
  4. Follow public health advice on testing, self-isolation and managing confirmed cases of COVID-19
  5. Implementation of COVID19 Vaccination programme for 12-15 year olds

Should there be a significant outbreak locally, we may need to re-introduce some extra control measures. These are detailed in the schools Outbreak Management Plan and may be reintroduced to some or more extent based on the strength of the outbreak.

Testing your child at home:  

Home testing should continue twice a week, midweek and before returning to school on a Monday. 

We encourage all students to pick up home lateral flow test kits from school. These are also available from chemists and test centres. For full information on Covid testing at home please see our ‘Home Test Kits’ page by selecting the page from the dropdown menu on the left.  

A huge thank you to all parents who have supported their children in testing at home, this will have a positive impact on stopping the virus from spreading. Please remember that EVERY test done must be logged on the government’s website:

Please keep in touch with us via: and we will continue to answer any queries you have as best we can.  

Many thanks,
