About 1 in 3 people with coronavirus do not have symptoms but can still pass it on to others. Regular testing of people without symptoms is important to help stop the virus spreading and protect your loved ones. As lockdown restrictions gradually ease we all need to play our part to help protect each other.
Students have taken 3 tests in school since their return on 8th March 2021. They are now being provided with Home Self Test Kits.
All students should take 2 tests per week, 3 to 5 days apart.
Easter Holidays 2021
- Please continue to use home test kits, every 3 to 5 days during the holidays. We will only request results of the test taken on Wednesday 14th April before we return to school – form will be emailed.
- If you test positive on a LFT, book a PCR test to confirm result.
- If you test positive on a PCR, you need to inform the school up until MIDNIGHT FRIDAY 2nd March (or if symptoms began while still in school). Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you test positive with a Lateral Flow Test taken at home, the NHS recommends you confirm the result with a PCR test. You must self isolate during this time. If the PCR test comes back negative you are free to resume normal activities. Book a PCR test.
The tests provided by school are for students only. If you want additional home self test kits they are available from NHS Test Centres – information here.
