I hope this email finds you well. School life definitely feels much more normal this year than last year, which is great. We currently have low case numbers in the school, but looking at the regional picture, that is likely to increase over the next month, so please keep testing (see below).
Last week we had a great curriculum enrichment day, with each year group having the chance to get stuck into different learning activities:
All in all, a really different day, with lots of different learning going on from usual.
Please do keep encouraging your daughter (or son in sixth form) to complete saliva tests twice a week on Mondays and Thursday. Case numbers are rising in the region and we all need to do our part to keep case numbers down.
We have had an extra assembly on Friday to remind pupils and staff how to complete them, and also looking at ways of supporting with reminding us all to test throughout the week. It's great to see increasing numbers completing the tests. There are now also posters up around school to help remind us all to complete them.
The most recent newsletter from the testing programme is attached with an interview with one of our pupils! To highlight some facts and figures about the testing programme:
