September 2021 Student Return Arrangements

by | Aug 26, 2021 | Parent Communications | 0 comments

Dear Parents/Carers,

we are receiving more guidance from the Government regarding what is expected from schools in the way of Covid-19 testing when students return in September.

The Government have confirmed that all secondary school students should be offered 2 on- site Lateral flow tests, 3 to 5 days apart, on their return in the autumn term. Following the 2 on-site Lateral flow tests, secondary students should continue to test twice weekly at home until the end of September, when this will be reviewed.

To accommodate this request, we shall stagger the start times and dates of students. They do not need to come in school uniform for their first test but must come in full uniform for their second test as they will stay in school with the exception of Year 9 (see below) who return the day after their second test.

Catering Services

Due to the Lateral Flow testing centre having to be set up in the dining area, we are having to look at alternative arrangements to ensure our students are able to access lunch.

 

On Monday 6th September and Tuesday 7th September, the catering staff will bring a selection of sandwiches (ham, tuna and cheese), drinks and cookies, to form rooms for those students in for the majority of the day. These lunches will be free of charge. The catering facilities will then be back running as normal on Wednesday 8th September. Please remember to add funds to your child’s Parent Pay account for school dinners. Machines will also be back up and running around the school for students to add money to their accounts. New Year 7 students parent/carers will receive letters with their Parent Pay login details in due course.

 

 

 

Outdoor Zones / Entrances and Exits

We have found many benefits to children having their own dedicated areas for the start of the day and for break and lunch and we are going to continue with this in September. Please let your child know where to line up at the start of the day.
