Dear Parents of Year 6
We have now received the staff test results we were waiting for and we can now safely staff year 6.
Please read the following carefully.
Any child who has no symptoms at all and a negative PCR can return to school this afternoon from 1pm.
If parents are happy to do so, please show the negative PCR result to staff at the office.
If you prefer, children can return tomorrow morning at normal school time and show the negative PCR to staff on the gate. We now have 12 cases across Year 6.
It is very important that we remain vigilant for symptoms. A negative PCR only tells us about that exact moment in time. If any staff or pupil have any symptoms within the 10 day period, they should have a further PCR test.
Staff from Year 6 who are in school will be taking daily lateral flow test to try and mitigate the risk.
Government guidance is that lateral flow tests should only be used for primary aged pupils at parents’ discretion whilst waiting for PCR results.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at school.
Thank you for your continued support.
