You would have seen the message from Belinda Greer informing you about COVID19 testing of ESF staff in order to bring all students back into schools for half days, from Monday to Friday.
Even though students at JCSRS are already coming into school Monday to Friday our staff will also be tested.
The current arrangement, i.e. students coming into school in two groups, will continue for the rest of this term. We think there are many benefits of having less students at school at any given time, for example, improved social distancing, reduced risk of cross infections between different class groups, access to specialist areas and therapy. Obviously, there are also benefits to all students coming into school as one group for half days. We will use the next couple of weeks to consider all options and their benefits and challenges.
In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or comments about any of the above.
