News - January Return Dates

January Return Dates

Please see the return dates for January below:

Thursday 6th January - Year 10 and 11 Lateral Flow Test appointments

Friday 7th January - Year 7, 8 and 9 Lateral Flow Test appointments, Year 10 and 11 Return to School

Monday 10th January - Year 7, 8 and 9 Return to School




Time slots for pupils taking part in the testing were sent out via MyEd. 

On their test date pupils will need to attend school via the main reception 10 minutes
before their allocated time slot, undertake their test and then go back home. Pupils must
wear a mask (unless exempt) and must sanitise their hands on entry. If the result of their
test is negative, pupils are then able to return to lessons as normal on the following school
day. However, if the lateral flow test is positive, pupils will need to undertake a
confirmatory PCR test and must isolate for 10 days if this test is also positive.

Currently 56% of our pupil population takes part in testing (the number in Y7 is especially
low) and therefore we strongly encourage as many parents as possible to provide consent
for their child to take part in order to help keep our school community safe. 

If you haven't provided consent for in school testing, we kindly ask if you could test your child at home prior to their return to school.

If parents wish to withdraw consent please contact Nicola Jones via email at nicola.x.jones@salford.gov.uk.
