Dear Parents/ Carers
As term 1 of the academic year 2021/22 draws to an end, I would like to thank you, the parents, carers and extended families of our school family for the love, support and CARE you contribute to our community every day.
I know that many of our children, their families and our staff have been poorly (COVID or otherwise) for periods of time during this term and that is not pleasant for anyone. However, we have been able to have a much more ‘normal’ term and it has been a pleasure to see your children thriving and being a credit to you and our school.
I will try to keep this letter short as I know we have bombarded you with information.

Frequently Asked Questions: on site testing
Does my child come in only for an appointment and go home after?
Can they wear their own clothes?
Which entrance should they use?
Please use the Sports Hall entrance on Talbot Road
How long will the test take?
The test will take between 5-10 minutes from start to finish however it will be dependent on queue times. If your child is travelling by public transport they will need to wait for their result which will be an additional 15 minutes.
Can they come with friends/siblings or change their appointment?
No – we have to manage pupil numbers to ensure everyone’s safety. Therefore, sticking to the set appointment time is very important.
If I have not provided consent, does my child have to come in on the day at all?
No, they will return the following day with the rest of their year group
