Home Testing Kits
Thank you to everyone who has encouraged their child to take the free Covid-19 home test kit packs that are being offered to them. This is a vital way to help stop the spread of the virus.
It is important that your child tests themselves with home kits every 3-4 days throughout the Easter holidays, and most importantly – ON THE SUNDAY BEFORE RETURNING TO SCHOOL ON 19TH APRIL.
More test kits will be provided to students on Thursday 1 April.
Please read the link to the letter at the bottom of this page below regarding testing at home, but here are a few quick reminders:
- Test kits given at school are only for students. If you require these for yourselves please go to: https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests
- All results must be logged with the NHS here: https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result
- All results must be logged on the school tracker here: Home Testing Kit – Record Results
- If your child tests positive, please isolate your household, contact the school via email email@example.com, ring school immediately on 01889 802440 and you must also arrange for a PCR (lab) test kit to double check: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
