Student Return 2021

Dear MAA Families 

Further to our other recent communications, please see below the reminders about MAA Student Return. 

Please be aware: we ask that all students complete a lateral flow test before returning on their specific day and if positive, not to attend and contact the NHS. We will also test students, with parental consent, twice during the first 4 days of return in accordance with DfE guidance. If you have run out of self tests, they are available from MAA Reception on 31st August or for free at many pharmacies, Boots, Superdrug etc.
