September Start - Covid Update

Dear Parents and Carers,
As you may be aware, schools have been asked to conduct on site COVID tests twice with all pupils at the beginning of term in September. Your child’s first test will be carried out on Wednesday 1st September and the location and timings for this can be found below. Pupils will not need to wear school uniform and can leave as soon as the test is administered, therefore parents may wish to wait in the car park. We will telephone you immediately should your child have a positive Lateral Flow Test and we will ask you to book a PCR test as soon as possible. For many students in Year 7 this may be their first COVID test, if this is the case, we would encourage you to do some home testing over the summer break to help prepare them for the experience.
