I am writing to remind you that we require your permission in order to carry out a COVID test on your child upon their return to school. The Government has asked that all families support the
COVID testing programme.
Research shows that up to a third of the population could be carrying the virus and be unaware that they are infectious.

All students across the country are being offered this test in order to limit the spread of the infection across the community when schools reopen. All staff have also been offered the opportunity to have two tests prior to the re-opening of schools.
I would like you to support this programme in order to protect other members of our community from the spread of infection.
