TOMLINSCOTE SCHOOL - UPDATE FOR RETURN TO SCHOOL AND COVID TESTING
Return to school and schedule for asymptomatic testing information
I am really pleased that the government has announced that students can return to school from 8th March 2021. We have been thinking carefully about how to manage this return in a safe manner, that allows for 4500 tests to be taken and at the same time, enables normal lessons and student movement around the site to take place. This is quite a logistical task!
Consequently, the Tomlinscote plan is for all students to be tested once next week; it is easier to do testing while the site is quieter. Students will need to come to the Gym during their allocated time. Students will then return to school for normal lessons from Monday 8th March in a phased way over the following days. This will allow us to complete the huge number of tests required and slowly increase the number of students on site each day.
Please see the video below that was sent to students as well as full details in the attachments beneath.
