COVID-19 and Updates


Home Lateral Flow Testing

From the week beginning 21st March students have access to twice weekly lateral flow home testing. Students will bring their testing kits home from school and we encourage them to test every Sunday and Wednesday evenings. Whatever the result of the test it needs recording to both the NHS and to the school via these links.

Spring Term

This term all learning, for all students, will take place online. Lessons will be delivered by Microsoft Teams and following the normal timetable. The following students only should come into school:

  • Vulnerable children as identified by the school
  • Children of critical workers. We deem those in years 7 and 8 to be of the age to need supervising in school but strongly encourage older children of critical workers to continue with their studies from home giving them better access to live online lessons

You must register your child’s attendance using this form.

If you are unsure about whether or not your child falls into one of these categories, please contact us on enquiries@carres.uk for confirmation, or check the categories for critical workers here.

Covid-19 Enquiries

If any member of your household displays any of the following symptoms, they need to remain at home and arrange to have a Covid-19 test:

  • a new continuous cough
  • a high temperature
  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

At this point, everyone else in the household will also need to isolate until the result of the test is known.

Please let us know as soon as possible by using the following details:
