Information for Parents TWGGS Guide to Home Learning
Please also see our collection of Wellbeing Resources, which may provide support during this time.
The requirement for pupils to test at home twice weekly has been removed by the Government, and we no longer distribute home testing kits to pupils routinely. Schools may be advised to re-introduce asymptomatic testing for targeted groups of staff and pupils (in Year 7 and above) in the event of an outbreak, and only if testing measures have been advised or agreed by a Director of Public Health or local Health Protection Team.
The removal of testing does not replace current guidance for those with symptoms of COVID-19. Anyone with symptoms should follow the latest Government guidance. There is a link to this guidance below.
Pupils who have tested positive should use any test kits they already have at home to undertake testing on days 5 and 6, to determine when they are negative. If they have run out, we may be able to provide you with further home testing kits from our supplies at school, while stocks last. These may be collected by a parent or carer, or sent home with a sibling.
