The new Children’s Commissioner for England, Dame Rachel de Souza, has today launched The Big Ask – the largest ever consultation with children aged 4 to 17 in England. It aims to find out children’s concerns and aspirations about the future, so that we can put children at the heart of our country’s recovery from the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

All schools are encouraged to support their pupils to complete this survey. A range of teaching resources have also been produced, including lesson plans and activity packs, to help teachers incorporate this into their lessons.

As can be seen from these photos at school, we have repurposed our Chapel and Dining Room to facilitate the mass testing of pupils and staff for Asymptomatic presence of Covid-19 in our population. To date, we have carried out over 1000 Lateral Flow tests with no positives or voids - great reliability and provides a strong sense of security in our minds.  You can watch a PHE video on LFT testing here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebxhEOLfTN0
