Testing Procedure for Return to School on 4th January 2022 Pupils are encouraged to carry out COVID testing at home twice weekly, using Lateral Flow Devices. These tests should be 3-5 days apart, in the morning before school. Up to 1 in 3 people who have COVID have no symptoms and could be spreading it without knowing. Getting into a regular habit of testing twice a week will help stop the virus spreading.
We send home COVID testing kits with your child regularly and are available to collect if your child misses the distribution day. Participation in home testing is voluntary and the school does not need any further consent from parents.
Along with the other protective measures we are taking, these tests will help staff and pupils to remain in school safely.
More information is contained in the FAQ document below, together with a link to the consent form.
