COVID-19 Update

Lateral Flow tests Thursday 4 March and Friday 5 March
(Wed 3 Mar 12:25 pm)

A reminder that students can come into college on Thursday 4 March and Friday 5 March 2021 for a lateral flow test. Students can arrive any time between 8.00am and 4.30pm. Your child does not need to make an appointment. They can arrive at college any time between the hours in bold and have a test. Students MUST bring with them the completed consent form that was sent home last week. A copy of the consent form is on the website (below). We will not accept verbal consent or email consent. They do not need to come to college in uniform for their lateral flow test on Thursday 4 or Friday 5 March. The test should only take 15 minutes in total, including waiting time. However, there may be times when there is a longer wait, depending on how many students arrive at any one time. I anticipate that it will be quieter between 8.00am and 9.30am so I encourage your child to arrive during this time. They should enter the college via the college decking area.  They MUST wear a face covering and socially distance themselves from students and staff. If you are bringing your child by car please wait in your car for them in the car park opposite the college and do not escort your child into the building. Once your child has had the test they will be asked to leave the premises. We will only contact you if your child tests positive for COVID-19.

 

Loaned Laptops (Mon 1 Mar 3:50 pm)

Many students have been loaned laptops during the most recent closure. We are not requesting the return of these at this point, to allow students to continue to use these to support their college work. We will be in touch when the return of these will be required in the future. Should you wish to return the loaned device, then please ask your child to take it to internal reception where it will be signed back into college.  Should you have any queries about this please email z.hammond-phillips@unity.lancs.sch.uk.

 

Update Friday 26 February 2021 (1:00 pm)

I am delighted to inform you that Unity College will re-open fully on Monday 8 March for all students.

We will continue with our staggered start and end to the day.  Students will also need to enter and leave the college through different entrances/exits.

The attached letter has been posted home to all parents today, Friday 26 February, and provides more details of how the college will operate along with details of asymptomatic testing.

GREAT UNITY HOMEWORK CHALLENGE SUCCESS
(Wed 3 Mar 11:10 am)

Over the course of lockdown, students were given the opportunity to complete a number of extra-curricular challenges for reward points, whilst those who completed all challenges would also receive a medal and entry into a prize draw.

The students were given the opportunity to complete physical, reading, cooking, community, news and study based challenges, before sending evidence of their entries to their House Leader. The quality of entries was phenomenal, with many students demonstrating their creative, intuitive and active skills.

There were sixteen students who completed every challenge over the half term, all of whom will be rewarded with their medals when they return to school. It is hoped that as all students begin to return to Unity College next week, they will continue to excel both within their academic learning and their extra-curricular achievements.
