Volunteers to Help with Pupil Testing for Covid-19

23rd February 2021

Dear Parents and Carers

We are now working on plans to reopen school for all students from Monday 8th March. For this to happen as safely as possible, the Government is  requiring all pupils to be offered a series of lateral flow tests for Covid 19 upon their return. This is a very labour-intensive activity and we are seeking volunteers to assist us with this over the period 8th – 19th March. No previous medical experience is necessary as volunteers will not be asked to administer the tests to pupils. By doing this, you would be helping to return our community’s children to their classrooms in as safe and timely a manner as possible.

If you are able to help us with this task, please complete the form on the link below, giving your availability to assist with testing and to attend one training session. Volunteers who are able to offer consistent blocks of time during this period would be particularly helpful in enabling us to carry out this complex activity.

Please share this message with any other adults you know who might be able to offer their support.

With many thanks in anticipation of your help,

Claire Coates
