Thought of the week - 'Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.' - Mother Teresa
17 May 2021 - We are continuing to use the one way system round school and remember to social distance.

28 May 2021 A message from the Local Authority:

You may aware of continuing concerns regarding rises in cases of covid 19 in the borough and across GM. Currently, infection rates in Rochdale are high in comparison to other local areas.

We all appreciate your support at this time and we are trying to do the best to stop the spread of covid 19.

During the holiday period if you or your child have symptoms please do ensure that you go for a PCR test at one of the local testing sites. Secondary aged pupils are asked to continue to test twice a week throughout half term and essentially before returning to school at the beginning of the new term. Rochdale public health are strongly encouraging the continued use of face masks in communal areas in schools and in line with school guidance where social distancing can’t be maintained.

Parents of primary aged children can access Lateral Flow testing kits from local pharmacies and from the borough’s PCR sites. We would encourage you to pick the kits up and test children before the return to school. This will help us to enable a safer return to school after the half term break.

Contacting about a positive case out of school hours

If you are informed that your child has tested POSITIVE for COVID-19 out of school hours, such as in an evening , at the weekend or during the school holidays, please inform school using the following  email address;  info@stedwardsce.rochdale.sch.uk
