Covid-19 Update

Applicable to the mock exams in July/August 2021.

We will be making every effort to provide a safe exam environment for your child, so PLEASE do your part in maintaining a covid-safe environment for all – especially seeing that many households will be attending the event.

Self-Isolation

As stated by Public Health England, please do NOT bring your child to the test centre if your child, or any member of your house, has exhibited covid-19 symptoms in the last 10 days or your child is required to self-isolate due to being in contact with someone who has tested positive. As soon as you realise your household will need to self-isolate, simply contact us (via our contact form on 11plus.co.uk) to make an alternative arrangement to complete the mock exam.

COVID-19 symptoms:

  • high temperature
  • new, continuous cough
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • headache or general cold-like symptoms (Delta variant can present this way in children)

For most people Covid-19 is a mild illness, but if you or your child develops any of the above symptoms or becomes unwell please contact NHS111 or your GP. For more information about Covid-19 symptoms and management of the virus: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Social Distancing & Special Hygiene Measures

  • An appropriate social distance between families must be maintained while waiting outside the test centre.
  • Drop-off and collection will be at the registration desk i.e. parents are not permitted in the exam building.
  • Students’ temperatures will be checked at registration.
  • Special hygiene measures will be carried out (including hand washing or sanitiser).
  • Students will be seated in the exam room such that appropriate social distancing is maintained.

What To Bring

  • To speed up the registration process, please have your child’s Chuckra 11Plus student number (emailed 48 hrs prior to the session) available to display on your phone or as a printed copy.
  • A few sharp pencils and a good eraser in a clear plastic pencil case/bag or no bag at all.
  • A water/drink bottle only i.e. no snacks.
  • An item of warm clothing in case the exam room gets cold as it will be well ventilated throughout the session.
  • As added protection, we recommend that students (AND parents) wear a suitable face covering/mask (that they are comfortable using) when not seated at their exam desk i.e. moving around the building – during registration, walking to their exam room, going to the toilet etc.; or throughout the session, if they wish.

IMPORTANT: After The Mock Session

Please inform us urgently, if your child, or any member of your house, displays covid-19 symptoms within 4 days after attending a mock exam session.
