‘City Council and Public Health England (PHE) informed us on Friday afternoon that coronavirus (COVID-19) cases have been identified in our school that are related to a variant of concern.

‘The risk of ongoing transmission in the school is believed to be LOW because of the measures that school and families have taken, but, as a precautionary measure, PHE and Nottingham City Council would like to check whether there has been any asymptomatic transmission of COVID-19 in school. To do this, PHE are asking our school community (parents, carers, staff and pupils) to take a PCR COVID-19 test (swab) at school.

‘We welcome this opportunity to engage with testing to keep our community safe both within and outside of our school. It only takes a few minutes and we strongly encourage all parents and children to take part to prevent further spread.

‘For this week only please collect your child from the classroom doors on the car park side of school at the end of the day. All gates will be open to support this. This is so that queues for the mobile testing units do not interfere with classes being dismissed at the end of the day.

As from Tuesday 25th May 2021) there will be two mobile testing units on site. The units will be located on the main school playground until Friday 28th May.
