Lateral flow testing update

Following the success of the asymptomatic testing programme, it is vital to keep testing at home throughout the Easter holidays and into the summer term.

As you know we have already given out 5 weeks’ worth of home testing kits which allowed you to start testing from WC Monday 8th March testing twice weekly, which will now bring you up to Sunday 11th April. 

More test kits will be coming home on Friday 26th March and should be used from WC Monday 12th April through to Sunday 2nd May.

Please continue to:

  • Test twice a week at home on a Sundays and a Wednesdays from now on (for all those who have agreed). This includes over the Easter holidays.
  • Report results online to the NHS and to school; as positive, negative or void. Email school if a positive results.  This information is critical in helping to understand the prevalence of the virus across the country
  • Isolate if you are a positive case as per the guidelines.

You should test before returning to school for the summer term.

We thank you all for all your cooperation on this matter.
