Please find below all documents relating to the COVID-19 response. Scroll down to view useful links - this includes the links needed for reporting results for Year 7 and 8 pupils who are taking part in the lateral flow device home testing every Sunday and Thursday. All lateral flow results (positive and negative) should be reported to NHS Test and Trace using the link below.
To report an absence due to a positive Covid result please email the school office, firstname.lastname@example.org, giving details of the date of the Covid test, if your child has any symptoms and the dates of isolation. This is so that we can record the absence accurately. In this circumstance only you do not need to ring in the absence daily after the first call. You should, however, let us know if your child is able to return before the 10 day isolation due to two consecutive negative results from Day 5 onwards.
If you have consented to your Year 7 or 8 child taking part in the twice weekly LFD Covid testing, we have now had some new tests delivered. These are nasal only so your child will no longer need to to swab their throat.
As many people are now at different stages with the number of tests they have, we will no longer giving them out individually to pupils. If your child needs a new box of tests please ask them to request one at the school office.
