Please find below the Covid testing plans for the return of students in January.
There will be a staggered start to the new term but we aim to minimise disruption by getting students back into lessons as quickly as possible.
All tests will be done in the sports hall and students should report in full school uniform and be ready to attend lessons the same day as their test. This is with the exception of Year 10 and Year 13. All students will need to arrive for their test via the Ebrook Road gates, they will need to be wearing a face covering and have their phone ready to record their test result using the NHS website, instruction will be provided. Students will be able to use the school wi-fi to access the internet. If students do not have a phone or an internet enabled device they will be able to make use of a school device to record their result. Once we know students have tested negative we will allow them to attend lessons. Any student who tests positive will need to return home and their parents will be informed. We already have consent from previous testing programmes but if parents wish to change their preference on this please email firstname.lastname@example.org
