Successful onsite testing programme for Year 8 on Wednesday 9th June

Feedback on successful onsite testing programme for Year 8

Thank you for your support today. The onsite self-administered lateral flow testing has gone very well with a high student turnout.

We are pleased to inform you that all Year 8 students can return to school tomorrow (Thursday 10th June) unless they are still required to isolate because they have been identified as close contacts.

All Year 8 students have been re-issued with a box containing seven lateral flow test kits and it is vitally important that regular twice weekly testing and reporting continues in the coming weeks. You will have seen the media reports that Covid-19 rates in Greater Manchester and its surrounding area in school age children have increased substantially.  We are sure that you will want to use these tests to minimise any further disruption to in-school learning.

On a separate note, we are looking into the issue that resulted in some parents / carers not receiving the test times email yesterday evening; thank you to those parents / carers who alerted us to this issue.

Kind regards,

Mr D Jones
Senior Leader, Extended Student Services
