"As many of you are likely to be aware we have invested significantly in a lateral flow testing regime for all staff and visitors to our premises since February this year.
This has been in place to help protect everyone involved in our business and close community and provide reassurance that everyone is learning in as safe an environment as possible.
Removing all restrictions at this time when the COVID-19 virus continues to be increasing across the country is a big next step.
Therefore, out of respect and for the safety of all, we would encourage you all to maintain your personal COVID-19 self-testing regime and expect you to have tested negative before attending our premises.
In line with the current government guidelines do not attend if you are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms unless a PCR test has been done prior to attending.
We fully recognise that the majority are likely to have received two vaccinations, however, we also know that this alone will not stop transmission or getting COVID-19.
This approach will mean that everyone can be reassured that all steps have been taken to keep everyone safe.
In anticipation we would like to thank you for working with us on this basis."
Lyndsay Corbett, Training Manager
