Welcome to the Covid-19 information page.
Here you will find details about how school fully reopened after lockdown, in accordance with government guidelines, and updated information about pupil Covid-19 home testing.
Now that in-school Covid testing has ended we will be supplying pupils with Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests to use at home. Pupils should test themselves every 3-4 days (twice per week) and it may help if they develop a routine eg. every Sunday and Wednesday evening.

Returning to school after lockdown
Our priority is to ensure the safest possible return and how we will be organising school to ensure this.
Each year group in years 7-9 will be treated as individual ‘bubbles; and year 10 and 11 as a combined ‘bubble’.
School transport has been arranged for each bubble to travel separately and with staggered start and finish times. This also allows us to keep each year group physically separated both in transit and in school.
Inside the building we have ‘zoned’ areas for each year group and classes. Years 7-9 will have consistent classroom bases and teachers will move to them to dramatically cut down pupil movement.
The school day and timings for each individual year group, with staggered breaks and lunchtimes will operate but also allow for a full curriculum offer.
Enhanced hygiene and Covid prevention and management risk assessments are fully in place but in accordance to both Government and LCC requirements.
Please do read through the information provided and do not hesitate to contact school for further information.
