Together Students Achieve

On-Site Testing

In this section we will share with you information regarding our on-site testing for students and staff.

Students will be returning to onsite education from Monday 8 March. There has been a change to the guidance allowing schools to conduct the testing of students before Monday 8 March. This is a positive move as it will ensure all students can return to the academy on Monday 8 March. It will also reduce the number of lessons disrupted by testing.

The guidance means that all students, where consent is given, will be tested three times with a 3-5 day gap between each test. Once students have a negative result on their first test, they are then free to start attending lessons on Monday 8 March. With this in mind, we will begin our testing of students next week enabling all students to return on Monday 8 March.

Please watch the following video for detailed instructions on the academy Covid-19 on-site testing.
