Regular Asymptomatic Lateral Flow Device Testing at Home

The video and documents below show step by step how to carry out the test at home.

Home tests should be carried out twice per week on Sunday and WednesdayAll results need to be reported to school as soon as possible after the test using the following links:

 

Report a NEGATIVE test result

 

Report a POSITIVE test result

 

In addition to reporting results to school, you should also report results to NHS Test and Trace using this link

We are working hard to keep our school and local community as safe as possible. Up to one in three people who have COVID-19 can spread the virus without knowing. This is because they have no symptoms. To reduce the spread of the virus, we need to identify those individuals. We can help to do this in schools by carrying out tests at home twice every week, 3-4 days apart. 

Any tests taken at home which return a positive result will require a follow up confirmatory PCR test from a test centre. If the follow up PCR test is negative, the student/staff member can return to school.
