Returning to school following the half term break

School will reopen to all students on Monday 7th June 2021at 8:40am prompt.


If your child is unwell in any way, has been told they must self isolate or has been in close contact with someone during the school break who has tested positive for Covid-19, they must not come to school.


If you need to discuss any symptoms that your child or other household member may be experiencing please contact us on Nocv19@hccs.info and we will respond appropriately. We must all remain vigilant at all times and work together to keep our whole school community safe.


Time to take take a test (LFT)


There is little doubt that over the coming months, home testing will play a major part in keeping our school safe and enabling our students to get back on track with their studies as we head towards summer. There are now just four days until we reopen following the half term break. If your son or daughter haven’t tested so far this week, then please ask them to do so. If they test Thursday or Friday and again on Sunday it would very much be appreciated.


Registering our test registration system is easy providing you use an email address that is held by the school. If you have any problems registering, please let us know and a member of our team will be happy to help. The system can be access at: https://testregister.co.uk/login


Keeping a track on tests and their results is really important for us as a school especially when we are in discussions with parents about whether or not it is safe for them to come to school. Test kits for students are regularly handed out in school and families can order them free of charge from https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests


If someone in your household tests positive using an LFT test


If someone in your household tests positive for Covid-19 using the home test kits (LFT), you should immediately isolate and arrange for a PCR test. The PCR test should be booked immediately either online or by calling 119 and should be undertaken within 2 days.


Staff, students and pupils who had a positive LFD test result, and their close contacts and other members of their household, should self-isolate immediately in line with NHS Test and Trace guidance while awaiting the PCR result. If the PCR test is negative, it overrides the LFD test and the staff member, pupil or student can return to school or college, and their close contacts can end their self-isolation.
