As we look forward to welcoming students back for the second half of the summer term, I would like to re-iterate a request, from the Secretary of State for Education, that all students who have appropriate consent take a lateral flow test prior to returning to school tomorrow.
You may have heard that the Government is asking all secondary schools to test their students to identify asymptomatic cases using new, quicker COVID-19 tests known as ‘lateral flow devices’ (LFDs).
As a school we have been working with Carl Moreton the founder of MyFutureSelf, the mentoring service working with young people across Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.
As per the recent letter from Mr Golding, we will no longer be able to provide a free mask to students but will instead offer them for sale in the canteen from Monday 16 November for 50p each.
As outlined in a recent letter from Mr Murray dated 2 November, please can we ask for your support in reinforcing some key points with your children prior to the National Lockdown which starts on Thursday 5 November.
