Hi All,
Hope everyone registered got long awaiting SET arrangements email. It says
Please go to the Wison's School website at:
https://www.wilsons.school where you will find all the additional information that you need before exam day as follows:-

1. Arrangements for test day including details of what to bring and where to collect your child.
2. A map showing the Entrances to the school.
3. Guidance notes on what to do if your child is not fit to sit the test on the day.

But i am not able to find the information from the website showing entrance or different gate. Any help much appreciated.

agree I can't see it either, maybe someone else has found it

PS there is this on what to bring :

Your child will need:

A print out of the invitation email which will be sent to you the week before the test. This contains your child’s venue details and candidate number. This is very important. If you don’t have access to a printer you can write your son’s name, date of birth and candidate number on a piece of paper.
Two or more pencils (HB or B) — we cannot loan equipment
A good quality rubber
A book to read before the tests start and during the break. Make sure the book is one that your son really enjoys as he may be waiting in his test room for an extended period before the tests start.
A small, personal bottle of hand sanitiser and tissues
A jumper or fleece. Make sure that your son has enough warm layers as we will be keeping windows and doors open to ensure good ventilation.

We strongly request that candidates bring a face covering to wear on arrival and departure and when moving around the school buildings.

They may also bring:

A bottle of water – no fizzy drinks please – and a snack (no nuts)
A ruler to help them keep their place on the answer sheet

Your child must not bring:

A mobile telephone or any other electronic device.
A calculator or calculator watch.
A watch that beeps.
Any piece of stationery which displays times tables or other such information.
A dictionary.

This is in the FAQ entitled "How are Wilson’s School following Government guidelines with regard to COVID-19 for the Selective Eligibility Test?"

Dropping off and Collecting candidates at Wilson’s School
Clear guidance is given in advance of test day to ensure that no-one is on site (candidates, staff, student helpers) if they are showing any symptoms of COVID or are self-isolating because of recent contact with someone showing symptoms or testing positive.

On Wednesday 11 November the school is closed to the school’s current students in order to facilitate the testing and this also reduces the amount of contacts on the day.

We ask that only one parent/carer bring and collect each candidate please. Please make alternative arrangements for the care of siblings if at all possible.

Candidates and their parents/carers should arrive within the specified arrival time slot for their relevant session. During that time period candidates will be escorted into their exam venue by student helpers/staff as they arrive.

Those that arrive before the start of the arrival time slot will be asked to queue in a socially distanced way. So far as possible we will arrange for queuing within the school site. The school’s Combined Cadet Force (CCF) will assist with managing queues within the school grounds.

Parents/carers and candidates are advised to wear appropriate clothing for the weather on the day.

For collection parents/carers will be grouped by colour zone in areas that will allow social distancing. Candidates will be escorted out to parents as their test ends so there will be a natural staggering at collection time.

Entering the school grounds/building
Candidates will be required to use hand sanitiser prior to entering the building and we ask that they bring their own hand sanitiser and tissues.

Parents/carers will NOT be permitted to enter the site when dropping off candidates. We apologise in advance but this means that parents/carers will not be able to use toilet facilities on the school site under any circumstances.

Candidates will be collected from the designated arrival gate and escorted into the school buildings and to their exam venue by a member of staff or student helper.

We will have systems in place inside the premises so that candidates are able to maintain appropriate social distancing.

Face coverings
Candidates are requested to wear face coverings on arrival and departure and in the school communal areas such as corridors and toilets unless they are exempt.

Candidates do not need to wear face coverings during the exam, but may wear them if they wish.

Any parent/carer or candidate who uses public transport to travel to Wilson’s School should follow the Government requirements for wearing face coverings.

Parents/carers are expected to wear face coverings (unless exempt) on arrival and collection at all times whilst queuing (on and off the school site) and waiting for their child.

Staff and student helpers escorting the candidates will be wearing a face covering or visor.

Maintaining distance between staff and candidates
All candidates will be seated at an appropriate social distance from one another. Where it has been possible to do so, arrangements have been made to seat children from the same primary school in the same room. This is so that these children are most likely to be near others from the same Year 6 bubble.

Invigilators will wear a face covering or visor except for when they are socially distanced from candidates.

Invigilators will stand at socially distanced viewing points in the room. They may walk up and down aisles between desks to observe throughout the exam and during these brief moments they will not be socially distanced from candidates.

If a candidate requests assistance during an exam, invigilators will wear a face covering or visor whilst standing alongside candidates when interacting with them rather than face to face.

Good ventilation will be ensured and maximised wherever possible, for example opening windows and propping open doors where safe to do so. We would therefore recommend candidates bring warm layers of clothing i.e. a jumper or fleece.

Exam rooms, toilet facilities and circulation areas will be kept clean; any frequently touched surfaces (door handles, taps, individual desks, chairs and so on) will be cleaned before each exam session with the usual cleaning products.

As part of our coronavirus risk assessment we do not have shared equipment in the school, so are unable to lend candidates equipment so please ensure that your child is equipped with spare items such as pencils and rubbers.

There are some vague bits on being able to sit the test on another day if you're ill on test day but not the number to call or email.

Eta, copied the addresses and re-entered them using the 'url' function, because to my view, the originals looked like they hadn't been. Then when I quoted the post, they did, but the original still doesn't. Apologies if I have confused anyone any more than myself :lol: .
