Term Dates & September 2021 Covid Testing

Term Dates & September 2021 Covid Testing

Testing of students in the Autumn Term and the date that each year group will return full time:  
  
We are working to keep our school as safe as possible. As per government guidance we are required to reinstate a full on-site Asymptomatic Testing Site.

The Government have announced that all secondary school students need to be tested twice weekly with a 3 day to 5 day gap between each test. Up to one third of people who have coronavirus experience no symptoms. By testing, we will help to stop the virus spreading and help keep our school open as safely as possible. The first two tests will be carried out at school and then tests will be provided for parents to test students at home. Parents will need to inform the school of results. All students must have at least one negative test recorded before they return to school.

To ensure a smooth transition back to school, which is safe and organised we will have a staggered programme of testing and return to school.

IMPORTANT

If you have not already done so and you are happy for your child to be tested, please complete the consent statement (one per student). You can complete the form electronically by following this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd1x4lx185dPRZh1Wj4ijEgCS2sUAUZuw2An7LRdrc19k2KCg/viewform

Those taking the test will be supervised by trained staff. The ‘lateral flow’ tests are quick and easy, using a swab of your nose and throat.
