Dear families, friends and partners of XP
I am sure you will have seen recently on the news that schools have been asked to provide Covid 19 lateral testing, in the first instance for staff and students who are attending secondary school, to help to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
I’m sure you will appreciate this has been a huge logistic challenge and a team in school led by Kate ap Harri, Michelle Jones and Nicola Mawby has been set up attending training, setting up testing protocols, processes and procedures and in a very short space of time have started to administer weekly testing for both staff and students who attend school. The testing in school is working safely and efficiently to help to keep staff and students safe. This is a remarkable achievement and we are grateful that our staff have stepped up to this challenge with such courage and compassion.
As testing numbers increase we are now looking to build our testing team so that we have the capacity to manage this increase effectively. Therefore, we are asking for volunteers who would like to help support the testing process in school. There are a number of roles that we require including both administering, and recording testing as well as helping staff and students conduct the tests. The testing takes place, at the moment, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, Thursday at 10.30 & Friday at 12pm so if you could commit to all or some of those times we would be extremely grateful.
We have already had a number of parents contact us to offer their help and if you wish to join them in supporting the school please contact us via the email office@xpschool and we will get back to you with further details.
With your help we will continue to look after our school and community because we are Crew!
Thank you in anticipation.
Kate ap Harri
