Response Covid-19 - Autumn Term 2021
Autumn Term - September 2021
We are delighted to be welcoming back learners to us at Inclusion Learning Centre and Inclusion College from Monday 6 September 2021. We are really looking forward to seeing everyone and to another successful year.
It has been asked of all schools and colleges that learners test on site twice at the beginning of the autumn term. From then onwards, home testing/on-site testing will continue until a review at the end of September.
For those we do not have consent to test on site, please find a link to the consent form below. We would be most grateful if you could compete and submit electronically.
We will be testing on Monday 6th September and Thursday 9th September. If your child does not start until Tuesday or Wednesday, they will test on their first day. The second test will be between 3-5 days later.
Like last year, if your child has a positive test result we will need to follow our procedures and ring you to arrange for you to collect them as soon as possible.
Learners will not be able to travel by public transport or taxi if they have received a positive test result.
They will then be required to take a PCR test as soon as possible after this and self- isolate while awaiting the results. More information can be found on the government website here.
Please find further advice on contact tracing below.
As always, if you have queries or concerns then please do contact us via the office on 01256 760 800.
Reminder on the testing process
In line with government guidance we shall be testing on site at Inclusion. This will help us to identify those who are Covid-positive but do not present with symptoms.
Testing is not for those who present with Covid-19 symptoms or any illness. If your child presents with any symptoms please keep them at home, book a test and self-isolate until you receive the result.
We are strongly encouraging all learners to be tested on site. They will need to do this themselves but staff can support them to do this safely.
Guidance on how the test will be performed and some photos of our testing areas as well as our team in PPE will can be found above on this page.
Email us in confidence, complete your details & the appropriate inclusion Team member will get back to you.
