Dear Parent/Carer

Asymptomatic Testing in Schools and Colleges Updates 

We are writing to update you regarding the latest Government guidance that we received today regarding the proposed rapid testing in school from January 2021

All Year 11 pupils, vulnerable children and previously identified critical workers children will return to school on the 6th January 2021.

All other year groups need to stay at home and follow remote learning provided via Google Classroom.  Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 will return to school on the 11th January 2021.

We know this is all very late notice and we are trying to plan as much as we can but the guidance supplied at the moment is very basic. We are expecting further guidance and support to set up the test centre in school in the new year. As soon as we receive more information this will be shared with parents.

Again many thanks for your continued support as we continue to navigate these unprecedented times.

I truly hope you all have a well deserved Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Yours Sincerely

Mr J Grant

Headteacher
