Lateral Flow Device (LFD) Testing
There will be an initial phased return to school for students. This is to ensure that they can be laterally flow tested (LFD) as per the government requirements, where consent is given. Where consent is provided, students are required to be tested twice within the first school week of returning so we can start the term with confidence.
The schedule of the first test is listed below, beginning with the new year 7 students. These students will have a specially arranged induction day on Thursday before officially starting their term on Monday 6 September. Details of the booking times during the morning and afternoon will be sent to you and your child after giving consent. On the testing day, the students will be given a time slot to come into school to be tested, and then go home. They do not need to wear the school uniform on the testing day and the whole process should be completed within a one-hour time slot.
Students will then commence face-to-face lessons on the dates above coloured in red. Further details about track and trace and isolation can be found here. Finally, we are really looking forward to welcoming the students back.
