September Mass Testing

It has been announced that schools would test before as the students return in September. The government has asked that we test our students twice in their first two weeks, with tests needing to be between three and five days apart. The first two tests will be conducted on site and students will be expected to continue testing at home from the 13th September.

We plan to test students on the following dates over the two week period. You will receive a text inviting you to attend and giving you a date and time of when to come. Below also includes when to return to school:

This programme currently is for the school to test students on their return to school. Whilst the government is encouraging all students and staff to participate in the testing arrangements are of course voluntary and any testing will only take place with consent. All parents and carers are required to complete the attached Microsoft Form giving or declining consent. On this occasion an email will not be sufficient.  The new in school tests are nasal swab only.
