In the last few days we have seen a significant rise in the number of cases of COVID-19 being reported to school. As a response we have advised that all students and staff should wear a mask whilst moving around the school in the communal areas and corridors. Please also ensure that your child has hand sanitiser so that they can regularly clean their hands.
A further measure is likely to be the introduction of lateral flow tests in school with those Tutor or Year groups particularly affected. We are currently looking at how these might operate. These additional tests should reduce the likelihood of passing the virus between groups within school. Testing will remain voluntary and families should continue to test at home twice weekly as normal.
These remain challenging times and your support is much appreciated.
