Return to College 08/03/21 - Update on COVID testing

Dear Student/Parent/Guardian

We are pleased to announce additional capacity for booking Covid-19 lateral flow device (LFD) tests. The college has been given access to this additional capacity through Essex County Council and means that students can book a test at community testing centres, any time prior to returning to College.

To book your test please click on the link below:

                                     https://www.essex.gov.uk/getting-tested-for-covid-19/if-you-dont-have-symptoms

Under organisation/age group you will need to register for this service and when doing so you will need to select one of the options below:

·         Essex Schools – Pupils Year 12’ if you are in your first year of study

·         Essex Schools – Pupils Year 13’ for any subsequent year of study

Please note that your first planned onsite session will not go ahead due to testing and you will be set independent learning tasks for you to complete.

Testing is not compulsory but is encouraged for everyone, even if you have received the vaccination, to assist in identifying asymptomatic cases of the virus.

For further information about LFD testing, see our FAQs on the College website.
