Some dates for the remainder of the school year have been affected by the Prime Minister's decision to delay the  lifting of restrictions until after 21st June, for up to another four weeks:

Move Up, Meet Your New Teacher Morning - originally scheduled for 1st July, this will now happen virtually on Google Classroom.  We did this successfully last year, so that children and parents can access welcome messages and videos from their new teacher and classmates.

Stay and Play Sessions for Early Years children new to Abbeys for September - the sessions scheduled for 24th June and 1st July are now cancelled.  The final session has been rescheduled to Wednesday 20th July, 1.30 - 3.00pm

Parents' Open Evening - scheduled for 6th July, sadly this event is now cancelled.

CORONAVIRUS TESTING

There are different tests you can get to check if you have coronavirus (COVID-19).  The test you need depends on why you're getting tested:

*PCR tests - mainly for people with symptoms, they are sent to a lab to be checked

*rapid lateral flow tests - only for people who do not have symptoms, they are used at home and give a result in 30 minutes

If you or your child has symptoms you must get a PCR test as soon as possible.  You and anyone you live with should stay at home until you get the test result.  Only leave home to have a test.  Anyone in your childcare or support bubble should also stay at home if you have been in close contact with them since the start of symptoms, or during the 48 hours before they started.  

Please note that we can only accept a negative result notification from a PCR test for your child before they can return to school.

MONDAY 12TH APRIL 2021:  Step 2 of Government's road map to easing of restrictions.  Please continue to observe social distancing on the playground, and wear a face covering unless you are exempt.  Where possible one adult per household to drop off and pick up children.
