Students can wear their own clothes and will only need to be in the academy for approximately 30 minutes. Once students have completed their LFT they will be able to leave the academy, except Year 10 students who will go to lessons. Parents/carers will only be notified if their child has a positive result. If the LFT test is positive then you will be informed and you would then need to book a confirmatory PCR test, and self-isolate whilst awaiting the results.  If your child is negative then they will return to the academy the next day for a full day’s timetable.

We hope that you have enjoyed a restful summer and look forward to welcoming back students. Thank you for your continued support.

Yours faithfully

Julia Collins | Principal
