As you may be aware, from yesterday the DfE has encouraged students and staff in schools to embark on daily contact testing for 7 days if they have been in contact with a positive case.
LFD test kits available in schools can be used for this purpose.
A continued thank you to everyone who has encouraged their child to take the free covid home test kit packs that are being offered to them. This is a vital way to help stop the spread of the virus. It is important that your child continues to test themselves during the Christmas holiday period twice a week.
For details on testing before returning to school in January please see below a letter from the principle dated 16/12/21.
If required, extra test kits will be available from student services on Thursday 12th December at 12.30pm when students leave school site.
Please read the link to the letter at the bottom of this page below regarding testing at home, but here a/re a few quick reminders:
