Dear Parent or Carer,
RE: COVID-19 home testing
Your young person should have now received their home COVID-19 testing kit from the college. There is a total of seven test within the pack and an instruction booklet on how to administer and report them. If your young person has not yet collected the kit, they may do so from reception at any time during the college day.
The test should be undertaken twice a week and we recommend the following days that will take them to the end of the Easter holidays. We will then wait government guidelines and instructions on any further actions to be taken.
- Tuesday 23rd March 2021
- Saturday 27th March 2021
- Thursday 1st April 2021
- Tuesday 6th April 2021
- Sunday, 11th April 2021
- Thursday, 15th April 2021
- Sunday 18th April 2021
If your young person tests positive, then please notify the college as a matter of urgency by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to enable us to take any action necessary with the persons peer group.
This process is not compulsory, but we strongly recommend that this is carried out in order to track and trace the COVID virus and to reduce the transmission rate.
We hope to have a full opening of the college on the 19th of April 2021 pending government instructions.
