We will be re-introducing in school mass testing when pupils return to school in September:
Wednesday 1st September (afternoon) : Year 7
Thursday 2nd September: Year 11 and Year 10
Friday 3rd September: Year 8 and 9
Year 7 and 11 pupils will start school on Friday 3rd September, with other year groups pupils returning on Monday 6th September.
The tests that we will be using are new and no longer require the back of the throat to be swabbed – pupils need to swab both nostrils instead – which I am sure will be a welcome development.
If you have consented to your child being tested in the past then this consent will be carried forwards for September. If you have not previously given consent but would like your child to participate please follow this link to complete the consent form by Wednesday 1st September
If you have consented to testing please ensure your child arrives in school via the front of the building at their allotted time. They will be in school for at least 30 minutes. They do not have to wear school uniform for testing.
