COVID-19 Update

Covid-19 UPDATE

Autumn 2021

We continue to follow the advice and guidance published by the UK government and in particular the Department for Education.  You can read the full guidance below, but in short, we are:

  • encouraging everyone to continue to wash their hands regularly 

  • Keeping occupied spaces well ventilated

  • cleaning frequently as we have been since March 2020

  • Following public health advice on testing, self-isolation and managing confirmed cases of COVID-19.

There is no longer a requirement to wear a face-covering at any time, however, we are encouraging staff and students to wear a face-covering where they cannot stay socially distant.

All staff and secondary students are being asked to self-test using a Lateral Flow Test twice a week in line with the government guidance.

If we have a significant number of Covid cases, we will work with our local Director of Public health the decide whether further preventative measures are necessary.
