I hope you are well.
In response to an increase in COVID cases, particularly in children of school age, across the city, Public Health has asked that we revisit our COVID risk assessment and consider introducing some additional measures to mitigate risk.
From Monday 29th November until the end of term we will be:
- Asking students and staff to wear face coverings in corridors and indoor communal areas.
- Cancelling school assemblies.
- Requesting that all those who are coming to watch our Christmas Dance Show on December 2nd and/or or Christmas Concert on December 8th and 9th, wear face coverings during the event/s and take a lateral flow test before attending the event/s.
Please can I also take this opportunity to remind you of the importance of taking a lateral flow test twice weekly. Students at Patcham High should be testing on Sundays and Wednesdays and registering their results with the school. Your support with this is greatly appreciated.
