Letter to families 26.03.21
The days are lengthening, British Summer Time is just around the corner and it’s almost time for the Easter holidays to begin!
We have had a happy and productive Spring term and it has been such a pleasure to have an increasing number of students back in school each week and to once again feel the positive energy and enthusiasm that our young people collectively bring to St Ann’s. We are greatly looking forward to the last remaining small group of students returning to school in April so that we finally have a ‘full house’.
Please note the following information
|Wednesday 31.03.21||Last day of term and an earlier finish time|
Buses will pick up students from school at 2pm
Please make sure someone is at home to receive your young person at this earlier time
|Monday 19.04.21||First day of Summer term|
All students are expected back in school
Please ring the school office if your young person is unable to attend for any reason
|Covid-19 Self Test Kits(These are for use on students who are not showing any signs of Covid-19 ie they are asymptomatic)||A pack of three tests is being sent home in a sealed box with this letter|
An instruction leaflet is inside the box
If you feel that your young person can cope with safely having a test, please carry out the test on Sunday 18.04.21 ie the day before he/she returns to school.
If the test is negative no further action is necessary and your young person should start back to school
If the test is positive you must report your result to the NHS (see page 15 of the instruction leaflet) and you will be given further information on the next steps to take. The whole family must then self isolate in accordance with current national guidance.
Remember these are voluntary tests but the government strongly recommends that they are regularly carried out.
Further test kits will be sent out by the school in the coming weeks. Please ring the school and speak to the nursing team if you have any queries.
If your young person is not currently in school but you would like a self-test kit please make arrangements to pick one up from the school office.
|Reports on student progress during the Spring term||These are being sent home by class teams next week|
Many thanks for your ongoing support throughout the spring term. Please be assured that the education, health, safety and well being of your young person remains our highest priority at all times and every good wish for a peaceful and happy Easter break.
