MyED CHS App: Our software provider has released a new update this week and we have experienced a few bugs with our Apple iOS users. We are working closely with the app development team to resolve any issues. Some users may be experiencing the following errors:
– Notifications for new messages, but no messages in the ‘messages’ tab.
– Multiple messages but out of date or in an incorrect order
In either of these cases, please reinstall the app and check that you are running version 3.2.1 This can be checked by opening the app and clicking the three horizontal menu lines in the top right hand corner. This will show the current App Version. From this menu, please also click ‘Sync Data’ to update your messages and notifications.
Lateral Flow Testing: Following the success of the asymptomatic testing programme on the return to school in March, it is vital to keep testing at home throughout the summer term.
