Return to school January 2022 arrangements
Covid-19 testing arrangements - Tuesday 4th January
On this day, the school will only be open to students for testing and they do not need to wear school uniform.
Students will be asked to arrive at their designated time slot and then to return home. Schools have only been asked to test students once on their return, but parents are encouraged to continue with twice weekly testing at home. Our students will be given one of three types as we use up current stock and are delivered new ones - click here for quick instructions for each
School will reopen to all students on Wednesday 5th January as normal in full uniform for Year 7- Year 11.
There will not be live lessons on the Tuesday but students will be asked to consolidate their learning from the autumn term using their knowledge organisers on ClassCharts. Work to be competed at home on this day will be discussed with students before the end of term.
The timings of student testing are shown below, and will take place in one hour slots per year group. Students are asked to arrive at the start time of their year group block if they are to have a COVID-19 test.
Year 7 - 9am
Year 8 - 10am
Year 9 - 11am
Year 10 - 12pm
Year 11 - 1pm
Year 12 &13 - 2pm
Only students who have parental consent (or have given self-consent if aged 16 or over) can be tested in the testing centre. We will use existing records to determine those that have consented.
Our best hopes are that we will see less disruption due to COVID-19 in the new year. Thank you for your ongoing support with all safety measures in school, especially with the home testing as it massively helps to control the spread of the virus in our community.
