Following the Government recommendation to schools, all of our Year 7 and 8 pupils have undergone a series of Covid-19 LFD tests this week in school. This would not have been possible without the detailed organisation from our Foundation Health Centre and the help from the tremendous team of Dean Close staff and parent volunteers. Over the last few months they have done a fantastic job administering and processing thousands of tests and we are extremely grateful to them all. As the programme is scaled back now that testing moves from school to home for staff and day pupils, the DCPS community are indebted to these kind volunteers for their generous time over so many weeks and for playing their crucial role in keeping us all safe.
