I am confident we will see the flagship Thomas Telford UTC become the gold standard for secondary education in Wolverhampton. I want every child that comes to Thomas Telford UTC to be part of the fabric of the school, and to go home every day fulfilled and happy that they have made progress in their learning and development.
Mr A Gill
Message from the PrincipalIn line with government advice, staff and students are to wear face coverings in all communal areas, and students are advised to wear them in classrooms. We encourage good hand hygiene and regular sanitisation, respiratory hygiene and distancing where possible. In addition, the UTC have introduced further cleaning measures. We are strongly encouraging all students to test twice-weekly at home with the test kits we provide. You can inform us of your LFT results using the following link, but you must report the result with the NHS. Details and guidance can be accessed from the links below.
From Monday 17th January 2022, if your child has no COVID-19 symptoms, and they receive a positive Lateral Flow Test result, they are not required to get a PCR test. The isolation period is 5-days, but if your child still has no related symptoms by day 5 they can be retested, and if they have a negative result on that day and day 6, they no longer need to isolate. If your child does have COVID-19 symptoms, they must take a PCR test and isolate until you receive a result. If your child does become symptomatic in the period, please complete the 10-day isolation. Please also keep the UTC updated. Case rates are being monitored nationally and locally, and we have plans in place, should we need them.One way in which parents could further support us in avoiding the transmission of COVID-19 is in the collection of students at the end of the day. The area outside of school is limited, and it may be wise to arrange to meet your child slightly further away from the school gate, enabling you to maintain good social distancing from others. Many thanks in advance for your support.
