Continued COVID19 Caution - Home Lateral Flow Device (LFD) Testing / Face Coverings / Hand Sanitizing - Summer Term 2

7th June 2021

Following on from the Parentmail I sent to you on Sunday 6th June, please could I ask you to discuss this information with your child(ren).

Following a rise in the number of coronavirus cases nationally over the past week, please could I remind you of the importance of all children taking a lateral flow device tests every Wednesday and Sunday.

Continued testing plays a vital role in ensuring year groups remain open and we keep the academy community safe. Please could you ensure that your child(ren) continue to test twice a week, enter the results on the NHS website and also report a positive LFD test result with the academy reception.

I would like to remind you that whilst face coverings are no longer mandatory on the academy site, all children are still welcome to wear face coverings as and when they wish both in classrooms or open areas. Furthermore, face coverings remain compulsory on public transport and in shops. Please could you remind your child(ren) to continue to use the 84 x wall mounted hand sanitizer units regularly throughout the school day
Finally, operationally we will remain set up in COVID19 secure Year Group bubbles for the rest of this term, as we have been since September 2020.

Kind regards
