We have received a letter from Knowsley Council regarding the rapid spread of the Delta variant in our borough.
The Council has advised a return to wearing face coverings in school for all secondary school students and staff including in classrooms and we will be adopting this as an additional measure to support us manage the increased risk of school based transmission.
We have also agreed to take part in a supervised self-test project, where pupils are asked to self test in school under supervision and staff will read and log results. The details of this are set out in the communication from the DFE overleaf.
If you have already consented to lateral flow testing for your child, you do not have to give consent again. If you have not consented previously and would like to do so, please follow the link: https://bit.ly/3pzrNYn
It is envisaged that we will start supervised testing from early next week.
Once again I would like to thank you for your support in helping us to ensure that Knowsley children are provided with the safest and best possible learning environments.
Mrs AL Kennedy
