Home Testing Guidance

All students that have consented to testing will be given TWO home testing kits when they attend school for their third and final ‘in school test’.  

Each test kit includes 3 Lateral Flow Device tests and students will be expected to test themselves TWICE per week:

TEST 1 = SUNDAY EVENING every week

TEST 2 = THURSDAY EVENING every week

All students and staff will test themselves on the same days each week.  This will allow us enough time to plan staffing arrangements, organise the curriculum and inform close contacts of positive cases that they need to self isolate before they come into school the next day.

Students will be given TWO test kits which will give them enough tests to last 3 weeks.  This will take us up to the Easter holidays.  We are awaiting guidance from the government as to what will happen over the Easter holidays.

Every student will be given TWO test kits to take home.  As there are a limited amount of tests we would urge parents and carers to remind their children that these TWO tests must arrive home.
