Covid-19//Remote Education

Our Risk Assesment and Contingency Plan have been updated for the Autumn Term 2021 and are reviewed fortnightly. This helps us to ensure we are following all the relevant guidelines and are reviewing how the situation is locally and in our school. 

Staff here are offered twice weekly lateral flow tests to help detect and manage cases and you can also access these for your family members now. You can get a twice-weekly test:

  • through your employer if they offer testing to employees
  • at a local test site
  • by collecting a home test kit from a test site
  • by ordering a home test kit online

Find your nearest rapid lateral flow test site.

Find your nearest home test kit collection point.

These tests are for asymptomatic testing. Anyone with symptoms should book a PCR test - see details below.

The Department for Education coronavirus helpline is available to answer questions about COVID-19 relating to education and children’s social care: 0800 046 8687
