Covid Home Testing Arrangements
While home testing remains voluntary, we would encourage as many students as possible to continue with this process at home until the end of September, when this will be reviewed by the Government.
If you do test, please remember that you must report the results of your child's test via the NHS website www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result or NHS app, and we also ask that you notify the school via the reporting tool (microsoft form) linked below.
Alongside staff, students with home testing kits are to continue to test themselves twice weekly (Sunday and Wednesday).
REPORTING YOUR CHILD'S COVID TEST RESULT

what do i need to do if my child tests positive on a lateral flow test?
Should your child test positive, please phone the school to report immediately, or email our Attendance Team at [email protected], who will then mark your child absent as self-isolating.
Alongside the updated guidance, Individuals are no longer required to self-isolate if they live in the same household as someone with COVID-19, or are a close contact of someone with COVID-19. Instead, they will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace, informed they have been in close contact with a positive case and advised to take a PCR test. We would encourage all individuals to take a PCR test, if advised to do so
If you have any further questions or queries related to home testing arrangements, please contact Mrs Bradley (Operations Lead) at [email protected] .
