Lateral Flow Testing

We just wanted to do a quick reminder that the use of the Lateral Flow testing commences this evening, Wednesday 24th of March and should be done twice weekly from now, and during the Easter holidays. If you started testing on Sunday please do not worry and now spread your remaining tests out ensuring you do one every 3 to 5 days leaving one for Sunday the 11th of April.

New testing kits are due for delivery to the school over the holidays and will be distributed when students return after the Easter break so that twice weekly testing can continue during the summer term.

The results of the test need to be recorded on the government website (details included in the pack). This includes if the test is positive, negative or void. As normal, we would ask that you let us know as soon as possible if your child has a positive test result. Please email the school on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and call on 01603 485266. At this point you can get a PCR Test to validate the result but your child and other household members must self-isolate.
