Reopening Guidance for Monday 8th March 2021
We look forward to seeing you all again!
Please find below a guide issued by NHS Test and Trace regarding regular rapid covid-19 testing. Regular rapid testing is now available for parents / carers of nursery, school children and college students, as well as adults in their households, childcare and support bubbles. Having carried out some investigations there are no rapid lateral flow test sites or home test collection points locally within our area, therefore if you would like to participate the option available would be to order a home test kit online. Please click on the links below for more information if this is of interest to you.
Staying safe whilst online
Whilst working from home, it is important to ensure all pupils understand how to stay safe online and what to do if there is a problem. These video links might help you to initiate a conversation with your child about the importance of online safety.
More information to support you can be found on the parent guide of the 'thinkuknow' website.
