Rapid testing for schools & returning after the winter break

Rapid testing for schools and returning after the winter break

18th Dec 2020



As you may have seen in the news yesterday (17th December 2020), there has been new announcements from the Government and DfE with new procedures for the return of secondary school students in January 2021.


The government has yesterday, 17 December, confirmed that all secondary schools and colleges in England will be able to offer staff and students an extra round of free coronavirus testing from the first week of January. This will help deliver the national priority of keeping as many students and teachers as possible in school and college while fighting the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).


A letter and email has been sent out to all parents and carers of students who attend our George Johnson Education Centre which can be accessed here.


Further Guidance by the Government and Department of Education can be found here


If you have any questions or concerns, we will be available to respond to emails via admin@specialisteducation.org
