Dear Parents and Carers,
We are looking forward to meeting your child this week. I would like to confirm the arrangements for Tuesday and Wednesday this week:
Tuesday 7th September:
Your child will only visit Wellsprings Sports Centre to do a lateral flow test on this day.
They are to arrive at Wellsprings Sports Centre at the time stated for the tutor group that they are in.
Please can they make their way round to Wellsprings Sports Centre, located behind the school. There will be signs to direct the children.
They do not need to be in uniform for the lateral flow test.
Masks are optional.
When the test is complete, they need to return home.

0930 – 7TKI 

1000 – 7HSA 

1030 – 7BMA 

1100 – 7EDI 

1130 – 7SKE 

1200 – 7MEV 

1230 – 7JLE 

Wednesday 8th September:
We appreciate your child might be very nervous on what is a big day for them. Please reassure them that there will be staff outside the front of school to help them as soon as they arrive. Year 7 students will be the only students on the school site, except from some Yr10 helpers. The arrangements are:
Arrive by 8.45am going through the main gates.
Correct uniform to be worn.
Masks are optional.
The canteen will be open. Please bring cash (it will take a few days to set up the cashless system). Students who receive FSM will be given lunch.
PE kit will not be needed.
Students will start their day with a welcome assembly and then time with their tutors in the morning.
We are very much looking forward to meeting your child and hope they really enjoy their first few days at The Taunton Academy.
Best wishes
Mr. Eddy
Head Teacher
