Rapid Testing for Primary School Staff

From this week we will be offering twice weekly rapid COVID-19 tests to all of our schools staff.  This will enable us to quickly identify where there are positive cases of COVID-19 in our staff team, particularly when they have no symptoms (asymptomatic).  


As before, if we have a positive case within school we would have to close the bubble in which the child or staff member works.  This is for the safety of all and to prevent wider transmission of the virus.


I ask, then, that you check our website, Facebook and Seesaw on a Sunday evening (after 8pm) and Wednesday evening (after 8pm) as we will announce any bubble closures on there as well as sending emails to individual families (and ringing where possible).  


By joining this regular testing regime, it will help identify positive cases more swiftly and help to keep our staff, children and families as safe as possible.


If you have any questions regarding this, please email 


Kind regards

Claire Withers


COLLECTION FROM AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION - All after school clubs collections will be from outside the main school entrance so please turn up at the collection time for your child (to avoid having lots of people waiting around outside of the building). The only access point will be through the front gates for safeguarding reasons. No other external gates will be open (e.g. the gates to the line) - this is because our afterschool childcare children have supervised access to our yard and field and it would not be safe to leave other gates open. Please remember to wear a face mask on site where possible and, unless your child is in Y6 and has permission to walk home, we will expect an adult to collect every child. Thank you for your support with this so that we can ensure safety for all.
