Returning to school – 8th March 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

Lateral Flow Testing 

Following the release of updated Government guidance this week, we are delighted to be making preparations for our students to return to school.  These include putting in place the systems to offer Lateral Flow Testing for our students. The Government advises that we should offer our students testing on-site from 8 March and that we should offer each child 3 tests, 3 to 5 days apart.  Testing will only be carried out where consent is given. 

The full details of our full return to school plans will be shared with you later this week, but in the meantime, in order to inform our planning, we need to obtain consent for your child to have Lateral Flow Tests in line with Government requirements, and would appreciate you completing the consent. Further information about the testing is available below and on our website:

If you have any questions at all with regards to lateral flow testing, please do not hesitate to contact us.
