Chief Executive Update – Half Term - COVID Tracking

Please see the latest Chief Executive update regarding Half-Term COVID-19 Tracking dated 28/05/21.

If your child, who attended school between Monday 24th May 2021 and Friday 28th May 2021, tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) or develops symptoms within 2 days (48 hours) of being in school you should notify the academy by emailing or telephoning 01384 986 550 as soon as possible.

Where a learner or staff member tests positive for COVID-19 during the holiday, having developed symptoms more than 2 full days since being in school, the academy does not need to be contacted. Parents and carers and staff should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace. Please remember that as soon as your child or any member of your household develops COVID-19 symptoms, they must start self-isolating immediately and book a test.

IMPORTANT: LFD Home Testing over Half Term

It is recommended that all academy staff and learners continue to test themselves during the half-term, particularly on Sunday 6th June prior to returning to the academy on Monday 7th June. Thank you in advance for your support, we hope you have a safe and restful Half Term holiday.
