Return to School – March 2021

This page contains the latest information and details following the announcement of a return to school from Monday 8 March 2021. 

We are looking forward to welcoming your daughter back into school after such a long time in lockdown. We have been working hard to prepare the school and our systems for our return to school on Monday 8 March and the more detailed arrangements can be found in this document: Return To School Plan From 8 March For Parents. Please read this information carefully to ensure that you are clear about when and where your daughter should return to school and details about the lateral flow testing that will precede a full return to school as directed by the government;

About 1 in 3 people with coronavirus do not have symptoms but can still pass it on to others. Regular testing of people without symptoms is important to help stop the virus spreading and protect your loved ones. As lockdown restrictions gradually ease we all need to play our part to help protect each other.

The following people in England will have access to regular rapid lateral flow testing made available to them as schools reopen:

·         secondary school pupils

·         primary and secondary school staff

·         households, childcare and support bubbles of primary and secondary-age pupils

·         households, childcare and support bubbles of primary and secondary staff

·         Primary school pupils will not be asked to test at this time.

Learn what rapid lateral flow testing is and why it’s being used.

If your daughter has coronavirus symptoms please do not send her to school. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, arrange to have a PCR test if you have not already had one. Stay at home while you are waiting for a home self-sampling kit, a test site appointment or a test result. Do not use the rapid lateral flow testing service as this is only for people without symptoms

The most important symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of any of the following:

·         a new continuous cough

·         a high temperature

·         a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia).
