COVID Testing

Students were offered two LFT tests during the first week of the September term and have been given kits since then to continue testing at home.  New kits were distributed w/c 1st November.   We have a stock in school if you need additional kits.

Please continue to test twice a week and inform the Academy of any positive LFT or PCR tests by contacting Attendance on 01405 810868.   If a student has symptoms a PCR test should be arranged by their parent/carer.

Updated information from the Department for Education 2 12 2021

There have been changes to DfE guidance regarding COVID-19. Unless your child has had at least one dose of the vaccine, if someone in the house tests positive for COVID-19 using a LFT or PCR, the advice is that your child needs to stay at home and get a PCR test straight away.
Parents and carers who still want their child to continue to attend school have the right for them to do so, unless they are a close contact of a person with Omicron variant.

Working on MS Team if self-isolating

If your child is self-isolating and they are well enough to complete school work, please remind them to log onto Teams to check for live lessons or work that has been set for them. They can also message their teachers through Teams if they need to.
