Statement from the Education Minister, Senator Tracey Vallois:
“We are delaying the start of term for Government of Jersey schools until Monday 11 January in order to stand up a voluntary testing programme for all Government and private school staff and students in Years 11, 12 and 13.
“This is the safest way forward and gives parents, young people, and our hard-working staff even greater security around their health and wellbeing.
“As previously announced, teachers and the wider school and college staff teams will be working from Monday 4th in preparing to welcome back our young people, and some schools will be open for students preparing for or sitting exams.
“Head teachers will be notifying their staff and parents and carers directly
with more details.”
