‼️ Important ‼️ Please can we remind parents/carers of the following information regarding COVID: 🔺 If your child or any member of your household is displaying COVID-19 symptoms, they need to book a full PCR test and all of the household need to isolate until the test result is received. If the result is negative, your child can attend The Academy as normal.
