Lateral Flow Device Testing from 8 March

LFT Update

1st March 2021

Dear Parents/Carers

Return to school – week beginning Monday 8th March
This is the first of a number of communications this week about the return to school. I felt it important to let you know as soon as possible which day your child will be tested and which day they will return to school. We will send a further two letters this week as follows:

1. Updated information about Lateral Flow Testing – this will give the times for each tutor group, how the test is done, what will happen afterwards, how the result will be sent home, more about consent, information about school transport and anything else that we need to tell you about.

2. Updated safety information for the return to classrooms – we will send the details
we sent in September with any new guidance included, including the wearing of face coverings in classrooms.

A summary of the plan for return is in the pdf below, with all year groups back in school by Thursday 11th March
