Covid-19 School Notices

March 2022

Dear Parents and Carers

As you will know, the government have recently made changes to Covid19 testing and isolation protocols. Guidance from the department for education states that:
 

  • Routine testing is now no longer expected in mainstream secondary schools 
  • Schools are no longer required to contact trace
  • Students should stay at home only if they experience symptoms, as with any illness

 
Students with SEND are advised to continue testing and kits remain available from school. Please speak to a member of the Pastoral Team if you require test kits.
Any student who was previously classed as extremely vulnerable may have separate advice from the doctor which they should follow.
We continue to advise enhanced personal hygiene and maintain current practices such as additional hand washing. We are also maintaining ventilation in classrooms and keeping the one-way system that is in operation around the school site.
 
The above is open to change and we continue to take advice from the Department for Education and Public Health England.
 
Kind regards
Mr B Chidwick
​Senior Deputy Headteacher
