COVID Testing Update

 

Dear Student,

I am writing to update you on the next stage of our COVID testing procedure. We have now tested thousands of our students at College to make sure that your return to learning on site is as safe as possible.

In line with guidance from the government, our students will now test themselves at home using test kits given to them at College.

This is voluntary but you are encouraged to test yourself regularly to help give you and your peers even more protection and keep us all safe. You should test twice each week as soon as you receive your test kit, even during the Easter break.

It is important for you to log your test results in two places:

  1. The College’s reporting system
  2. The Government site: www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result

 

This is so your test result can be traced, which means sharing some of your information: name, test result and test kit reference number. Your College is able collect and store test result data. We have shared with your parent or carer some more detail on how we do this safely and properly. If you would like to know more about how we use data and the privacy processes in place at College please let us know.

The QR codes below have been developed to make it as easy as possible for you to log results. These will also be available in hard copy at College.

We are here to help if you need any further guidance and support, please contact your tutor If you want to ask something or need help. By working together we can ensure that you continue to have a safe and valuable learning journey at the College.

If you have any questions, please email Christopher.lee@cadbury.ac.uk. Thank you for your continued support under difficult circumstances. Keep safe and well.

Yours sincerely,

Christopher Lee
