Dyslexia Friendly Books
We have made a really exciting addition to our library this week with 60 new dyslexia friendly books. These are Barrington Stoke books, with accessible font, layout and spacing on heavier, tinted paper. These books are engaging for teenagers, but written and designed to support reluctant readers, dyslexic students and/or those with low reading ages. Speak to Mrs Smith for more information and for the list of titles in the collection. read more
NHS Test and Trace: COVID-19 testing home testing for students
NHS Test and Trace: COVID-19 testing home testing for students.Dear Parent/Carer, Following on from our programme of three Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests for students upon their return to school, we are providing LFD home testing kits for students today to start testing. A negative home test result should not be understood as a means to relax or ignore social distancing or other virus prevention measures intended to reduce transmission – home testing is an additional tool that contributes to reducing risk. Written guidance will be provided with the home kits and an instructional video is available on YouTube for those taking the tests. The link for the video is: youtube link for COVID testing at home The test kits come with instructions on how to carry out the test, or this can be found online at https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/957271/COVID-19-self-test-instructions.pdf Students should test twice weekly 3-5 days apart at home before coming into school, ideally in the morning. read more
COVID-19 Measures in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the School community
In order to reassure the School and wider School community, detailed below are the current procedures and arrangements in place to ensure we are adhering to the COVID-19 safety measures: One way system A one way system has been put into place around the main school building. Students and staff are required to follow the route whenever they are moving around the building so everyone is moving in the same direction and therefore not face to face in corridors (similar to the one way systems in place in many supermarkets). Key points on the system are staffed to manage the flow of students. Miss Morgan will take you on a quick tour of the one way system in the video below. read more
E-Scooters - A Message from the Safer Schools Police Team
What is the law on e-scooters? Currently in the UK, you can legally buy an e-scooter, but you cannot ride it on a public road, cycle lane or pavement. The only place it can be used is on private land. The reason for this is that e-scooters are treated as motor vehicles by the Department of Transport and are subject to the same legal requirement as other vehicles, such as MOT, licencing, tax and insurance. read more
Great to be Back!
We just want to say how great it was to have the school filled with staff & students again! During the last week we have carried out over 900 Lateral Flow Tests - and are happy to report that all were negative! Students will be undergoing 2 to 3 further tests in school in the run up to the Easter Break. We have a few messages from our teachers who are over the moon to have busy classes full of energy again: "I am so happy to welcome my year 7 and 8 students into the Computer Room for Computer Science lessons. read more

Log onto the website https://test-for-coronavirus.service.gov.uk/register-kit?direction=back Register the test for “someone else” and scan or manually insert the bar code, depending what device you are using to register the test.
