September 2021: staggered start times & testing information for those who have provided consent.

In order to comply with the government’s requirement that we test pupils at the start of the new school year, we can stagger the start times in order to limit the number of close contacts who may be identified.  Please see the information below for your child’s starting date & time in addition to the testing information.

  • Tuesday, 31st August: the testing for those pupils for whom we have consent will take place in the sports hall.  Staff will be around to direct pupils. Uniform is not required.  Parents/carers may wish to wait for their child, as the testing process will not take long.  We will inform parents/carers of any positive results via Edulink or email.
