Headteacher at Sybil Andrews Academy, Bury St Edmunds, lauds testing regime following positive coronavirus result
The headteacher of a Bury St Edmunds school has lauded its coronavirus testing regime after one student received a positive result and a class bubble was sent home.
The Year 9 class bubble was sent home from Sybil Andrews Academy yesterday after a pupil took a lateral flow test at home and tested positive.
Trenica King, headteacher, said: “After a monumental effort to get every student tested three times as they returned to school, we have been pleased with how students have continued the testing regime at home.
“This has shown how home testing amongst students can work in reducing the spread of Covid-19.
“We look forward to welcoming all our students back after the Easter holidays.”
