I hope that you are well.
Please click on the link "Letter to Parents from the Department of Education" explaining their plan to provide Antigen Tests to pupils who are part of a classroom POD in which there was a confirmed case of Covid 19.
It continues to rely on parents to inform the school when their child has had a positive diagnosis. Please continue to do this. Schools have no other way of knowing about Covid cases amongst pupils.
Thank you very much for your huge co-operation in keeping children at home when symptomatic. This is the essential part - that we all work together to keep Covid out of our classrooms.
