    Returning to school after the Christmas holidays - January 2022

    17 December 2021 (by Dominic Wroe (dwroe))

    Dear Parent/Carer 

    I wanted to write to you in advance of the school holidays about our return to school in the New Year. The Government has asked that before learning begins we undertake onsite Covid testing again in school to help keep your son, your family and the whole school community safe. There is a requirement for one test to be undertaken, and after that all staff and learners return to twice weekly testing at home as we have been doing throughout this term.

    Our return to school will therefore be staggered to accommodate this onsite testing and the safe return of all learners. The arrangements are as follows for each year group;

    If you have previously given consent for onsite Covid testing you do not need to do anything as we will undertake a test as per your previous consent form. If you would like to give consent and haven’t previously done this then please email lmclean@ubhs.co.uk .

    Your son needs to wear his full school uniform and bring all of his equipment for learning with him.

     

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your on-going support for your son and our school. We look forward to seeing your son excel throughout 2022 at Upper Batley High School.

     

    Yours faithfully
