The Government has asked school to test all students for Covid using a Lateral Flow Device test from week commencing the 8th March.
In order to have a test we need to have parental consent. Please ensure you complete the consent form below as accurately as possible.
The video below shows the testing centre and procedure for students.
NHS guidance regarding LTF tests is available here: https://www.england.nhs.uk/coronavirus/publication/asymptomatic-staff-testing/
If a child tests positive on site with a lateral flow test the household must isolate and follow test and trace guidance. A follow up PCR test is not needed. All identified close contacts must also isolate.
If a child tests positive at home with a lateral flow test a follow up PCR test must be taken.
