DUAL TESTING QUALITY ASSURANCE EXERCISE

Duke of Edinburgh's Award

 

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is a fantastic opportunity for young people to develop skills and interests in a non-academic context. It requires independence, motivation, commitment and resilience over a prolonged period and will inspire and equip you to participate in a range of activities. The programme is internationally recognised and will help to define you as an individual. The sense of satisfaction that young people achieve as a result of complete the Duke of Edinburgh's Award is huge and can provide a confidence to suceed in life.

 

Wye School is a Duke of Edinburgh's Award Licenced Organisation which means we are able to run our own expeditions. We have several members of staff who have participated in the Award themselves and who will work with you to ensure that you achieve your Award. We have run the Bronze DofE Award for three consecutive years, and this year we will be running our first ever Silver Award.

DUAL TESTING QUALITY ASSURANCE EXERCISE  

 

As you may already know, the Department for Education has instructed all schools and colleges to offer mass testing to all pupils, students and staff.

 

The aim of this is to make our education community safer and limit the transmission of Covid-19.

 

This school is undergoing a Quality Assurance exercise to support NHS Test & Trace during the fortnight beginning the 27th September.

 

In essence the dual testing protocol involves an LFD test being run at the same time as a PCR test once next week. The LFD test and PCR test results are then recorded separately but also, crucially, linked together through a third process.

 

The details surrounding this process appears in the links below and further information has also been sent via email to individual parents, students and staff members.
