Return to School

Rapid Testing at Home (lateral flow for adults)

Please read the information attached as tests are for adults only who have no symptoms and not children.  If a child or adult has symptoms you need to book a test at Lord Street car park testing centre. 

Below is a simple but very helpful booklet to help your child with coming back to school. They may have many mixed emotions and that’s okay. Spend sometime reading the book together, letting them know that all their friends are doing the same and they will soon see them! We cant wait to see you all on Monday. 

Ways to help and support your child during lockdown.

  • Free online resources to help with home learning
  • Free eMagazines and eNewspapers - lots of titles to choose from
  • Our Ask a Kent Librarian service can help with accessing digital resources on your own device(s). If you’re stuck with this, or any other query, they can help.

 

The other information sheet covers online safety, highlighting a range of helpful free resources that families can use, including:
