Coronavirus Information

Recent Updates

When schools return in September 2021, we will be entering Step 4 of the Governments road map. This means restrictions will be lifted and we will slowly begin to move away from stringent restrictions on everyone’s day-to-day lives, towards advising people on how to protect themselves and others, alongside targeted interventions to reduce risk. As a result, school’s will no longer be able to close bubbles and we will be reliant on Track and Trace to contact you about close contacts.

As a result of the above information, school will be dependent on parents/carers to ensure children are taking LFTs on a weekly basis. All families can access LFTs by clicking on the following link. https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests

If anyone in your house has any of the 3 main symptoms, you need to book a PCR test on the following link. https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test

Midland Road old bus depot Mobile Test Unit (MTU) – suitable for people with cars Appointments needed – 10am to 4pm.
