St Thomas More

Catholic School

Arrangements for start of school January 2022

Return to school - Spring Term: The school will reopen after the Christmas Holidays on Wednesday, 5th January 2022 at 8.50 am, with staggered starts for each year group set out in the table below.  

As we did at the start of this academic year, we will be carrying out lateral flow testing on the first day back.  This will enable the school to return in a safe manner, knowing that everyone on site has tested negative before lessons begin.  If you have previously consented to your child having a lateral flow test, we shall test them on the days as set out on the table below; however, if you would rather your child is not tested, please email:

parents@stthomasmoreschool.org.uk and inform the school accordingly.

Details of start times/dates for each year group are set out below and other expectations re masks are set out in the attached letter
