The students have had another great week at the academy and we continue to be very impressed by their enthusiasm for school. I am afraid my message this week is very procedural and relates to lateral flow tests.
The government have asked staff and students to continue with lateral flow tests during the Easter holidays. Students will be given a box of seven tests next week and they need to take them on:
· Sunday 4th April
· Wednesday 7th April
· Sunday 11th April
· Wednesday 14th April
· Sunday 18th April
They should continue to report the results to the school and we will send a link via their email to complete the form.
We have made a successful application to be part of a clinical trial in the summer term. The trial is for 7 day lateral flow testing for close contacts of a positive case. This means if a student/member of staff tests positive, their close contacts can still come to school provided they sign up to take a lateral flow test in school for the next 7 school days. Once I have the full details of the trial, I will write with further information.
We continue to focus on rewards and it has been a pleasure to award so many students in assemblies over the last week. Please keep encouraging your sons and daughters to get their stickers and claim their rewards. We are hoping that in the summer term we will be able to run some reward trips.
This is the last newsletter of the term. The students finish at 12.30pm on Thursday and I’d like to wish you a relaxing and enjoyable break.
