Lateral Flow Tests

Thank you to all parents, carers and students who supported our return to school Lateral Flow Testing programme. 

This has now been completed and moving forward, all students who have consent will be provided with Home Lateral Testing kits.  

Alongside the continuation of home testing, the following measures are being implemented in school:

  • All rooms will be well ventilated.  This means that students may wish to wear additional layers when the weather turns colder.
  • Hand sanitising gel dispensers will remain around site and students will be encouraged to use them regularly.
  • Students will be encouraged to 'Catch it - Bin it - Kill it'.
  • Additional cleaning for key areas will continue during the school day.

Face coverings are no longer compulsory for students within classrooms or in communal areas, however every student and member of staff still has the choice to wear a mask, if they so wish.

Please do not send your child(ren) into school if they have symptoms of COVID-19.  Book a free PCR test as soon as possible and make sure you let us know the result.

From the 11th January 2022 :  If you get a positive rapid lateral flow test result, you WILL NOT need to take a PCR test to confirm the result IF YOU ARE FULL VACCINATED.  You must however self-isolate immediately if you get a positive rapid lateral flow test.
