Covid Testing Information for September 2021

Monday 6 September 2021 until Monday 13 September 2021

Before the end of term, we communicated that we are to test students for Covid-19 again before they start the September term. This is as per government guidelines surrounding the return of secondary aged school children.

Students will be offered two Lateral Flow Tests (LFT) in the first week of school. To allow for this we have planned a staggered start.

As in March 2021, we have set up a mass testing site in the school gym.  Starting on Monday 6 September 2021, students are allocated a date/time (see below) they need to attend school in order to receive their test.  All these tests will be self-administered by students, guided by trained staff.

It is important to note that testing for Covid-19 on students in school is voluntary.

Here is a video explaining how the LFT tests work.
There are ten testing bays set up to ensure students have privacy when taking each test, guided by a tester.  Students will then be free to leave the school site. The tests will be processed in-house at the testing facility.

Results will be communicated the same day via text and email to the contact named on the school system. Students with negative LFT tests will then attend lessons in school from the next day.

If your child is new to the school (or you didn't provide consent previously and would like to), please provide consent here.

Please also note, students over the age of 16 can provide their own consent, therefore sixth formers are allowed to complete the consent form.
