We are working to keep Ark Burlington Danes as safe as possible.

You may have heard that testing for those without coronavirus symptoms is beginning across the country using new, quicker COVID-19 tests known as ‘lateral flow tests’. Along with the other protective measures we are taking, these tests will help staff and students to remain in school safely. Up to one third of people who have coronavirus experience no symptoms. By testing we will help to stop the virus spread and help to keep our school open as safely as possible. The test is voluntary, but we would encourage everyone to take it.

We will be testing all staff and secondary school age students who want to participate from their return to the school site, beginning w/c 4th January.

Please see below for a letter explaining the test in more detail, and to complete the consent form.
