Important Things to Note – 11 March 2022

Important information about self isolation

From tonight at 11.59pm, the isolation period for anyone who tests positive for Covid, and their household contacts, will reduce from 10 to 7 days. This means if your daughter has been isolating for 7 or more days as of 11.59pm on Sunday, she will be able to return to school on Monday 14 March. If she still has symptoms after 7 days, she is advised to stay home until she is symptom-free for 24 hours.

If your daughter tests positive, please remember to email:

[email protected]

By doing that you will automatically be sent a short form to fill out, which tells us when your daughter will be back at school.

If your daughter is isolating as a close contact, please email [email protected] so her absence can be recorded correctly.

Household contacts still need to have a rapid antigen test (RAT) on days 3 and 7.

Year 9 Parent “Meet your daughter’s Form Teacher”

On Tuesday 15 March, we’ve got an online opportunity for Year 9 parents to meet their daughter’s Form Teacher. By Tuesday you should have received an email from your daughter’s Form Teacher with a link for you to join the Meet, which will be held at 6pm. This will be a chance for you to ask questions at the end of the session, and hear how the Form Class is going.
