Happy New Year!
I hope that you and your families have enjoyed a healthy and relaxing break.
With regards to our return to school, all children return on Tuesday 4th January 2022 as planned. It is essential that we all work together to keep our community safe and therefore I ask that parents and carers do not send their children to school if they are showing any symptoms of Covid and instead arrange for their child to take a PCR test. I also ask all children in Years 7 and above take a lateral flow test before their return to school to ensure that any asymptomatic cases can be caught early. If you are a parent/carer of a primary age child then please consider them taking a lateral flow test before returning to school.
Testing has been arranged at school on Tuesday for those children for which we have consent. If you have not consented for your child to be tested but would now like them to take a test please email Ms Newton so that your child can be added to the list: LNewton@qegsblackburn.com
Testing starts for those in the Sixth form at 8.25am in the Main Hall and I ask for those Sixth Formers who are having a test to report to the Main Hall as soon as they arrive at school.
