Secondary schools INSET day – 4 January 2021

Published: 18th December 2020

Bishop Chadwick Catholic Education Trust is committed to ensuring students and staff may safely return in the New Year. After receiving the latest government guidance about Mass Testing in secondary schools we have decided to call an INSET day on January 4th for all students in our secondary schools.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this short notice but we are responding to guidance from the government received late yesterday. The INSET day will mean that staff can be trained, testing kits can be accepted on site, consent for all pupils can be sought, and logistics surrounding testing can be finalised.

Our priority is the safety of your children and our staff, and it is essential our schools have time to manage this process thoroughly. Thank you for your continued support, and our schools will communicate with all their parents with more detail on this programme as soon as they are able to. Please continue to check your individual school’s website for up to date information.
