Start of Term Arrangements September 2021

Friday 23 July 2021

The government has announced that all pupils will be encouraged to have two on-site lateral flow tests at the start of next term to try and ensure that we do not spread the virus within our community on our return to school. We will be setting up our testing centre in the sports hall again for the first week of term. This means that the start of term will need to be slightly staggered to allow us to test all pupils on their return. Please see the plan below and click here for the latest letter to parents for further details.

5 ways you can support your child to be ready to return to school

1. Make sure you are clear about when your child returns to school. Please ensure your child arrives 5 minutes before their start time. See the times below.

 

2. Make sure your child has their uniform clean and ready for their first day. And they have all their equipment and school bag with them.

 

3. Please make sure your child's hair, headwear and accessories are appropriate for school and remember:

  • Hair must be of a natural colour and in an appropriate, professional style
  • No tramlines, Mohicans, extreme styling or hair or eyebrow designs
  • Pupils are allowed to cover their head for religious or cultural reasons in academy colours only (black/purple/grey or white) and without decoration or embellishment
  • One single, small stud earing can be worn in each ear, but no other jewellery can be worn at any time, apart from a watch
  • Hair accessories must be black
  • No makeup, false nails or coloured nail varnish.

 

4. Please ensure you have read and understood the consent for your child to have their rapid flow covid test in school. This is an opt out system, so if you do not wish for your child to be tested, please complete the form here.

 

5. Please make sure your child has completed their summer homework so that when they return to lessons, they are ready to go!
