Reopening of Schools

23 Feb 2021 | BY leekhigh

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope that you and your families are well.

Yesterday, as you’ll be aware, the Government published guidance on the reopening of schools following the current period of lockdown.

Many of the measures outlined in the guidance will be familiar to students and parents from last term, though there are a number of changes that will affect how we operate as a school.

Central to the safe reopening of schools is the provision of Lateral Flow Tests for those students whose parents have given consent. The guidance states that secondary schools should consider how and when students return from the 8th March in order to facilitate these tests being carried out in school.

As such, we will review how best to welcome students back during that week to ensure it is as safe as possible. We will communicate these arrangements to you by the end of this week at the very latest.

Lateral Flow Tests are optional and will only be offered to students whose parents have given consent. The consent form which needs completing as soon as possible is online at: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=2ZEO4Wgo4kyLCjxlLqwhBHgkt0fz8tBmvGIKT2NrdpURVJJUjZQRFdMV1NIQkdTR1pYTEc3RFFUQy4u

We will continue to communicate with you throughout the next two weeks to ensure you and your sons / daughters have all the information you need to feel confident about returning.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Yours sincerely
P. Evans
Headteacher
