To enable a safe return to school for all our staff and students we need to put in place arrangements for students to take two lateral flow tests when they return in September. To do this, we will need to stagger the return of students at the start of term.
Please can all parents/carers complete the consent form for lateral flow testing by clicking on this link.
All students must complete a lateral flow test the day before they come to school in September, but there is no requirement to test through the holiday. Please note that Department for Education guidance may change during the summer holiday, so these plans may need to be adapted. We will let you know as soon as possible if this is the case by letter.
