COVID-19 Self Testing Kits

These will be issued following your child’s second test at school. Each kit will contain the relevant equipment to complete a number of tests at home.

Students are expected to test twice each week, every Sunday and Thursday. The results MUST be uploaded to the NHS Test and Trace site here https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result or alternatively it can be done by calling 119 between 7am-11pm. There is no need to inform the school of the results unless your child tests positive.

If your child has a positive result from a lateral flow device (LFD) test, they should self-isolate – and you should inform the school Attendance Officer, Mrs Barrett-Reynolds of this as soon as possible. You should immediately order a confirmatory PCR test. If the confirmatory test is taken within two days and the result is negative, they can stop self-isolating (unless instructed to self-isolate for other reasons). If the confirmatory PCR test is positive (or is taken more than two days after the LFD), they will need to self-isolate until 10 days after the LFD test.

PCR tests can be booked online through the NHS Test & Trace website or by calling 119.
