Year 10 and Year 11 Return to School
Secondary schools and colleges are required to offer two onsite tests to all students from the start of the new term, followed by self-testing at home. In order to accommodate the testing of all students, Rudheath Senior Academy will reopen in a phased manner from the start of September. Year groups will return on the following days:
- Year 10 and Year 11: Friday 3rd September 2021
The second test for students will take place 3-5 days after the first test has been completed. The test is voluntary, but I would encourage everyone to take it. As outlined by Public Health England, testing is the most effective way to reduce the risk of transmission and support the continuation of face-to-face education. We will continue to work with local authorities and partner organisations to ensure any necessary guidelines are implemented and communicated to all families.
