Home Testing Update

Home testing is an important tool in preventing the spread of coronavirus.  Please continue to test your child twice a week to help identify any asymptomatic cases and reduce the risk of increased infection.

Your child has been provided with the next batch of testing kits during form time this morning.  If your child is absent, then their testing kit can be collected from their PSA or Director of Learning when they return to school.  Testing will not continue over the half term break. Consequently please follow the schedule listed below to ensure your child has enough tests to last until our next batch is delivered;

Testing Date

  • Sunday 10th October
  • Wednesday 13th October
  • Sunday 31st October
  • Wednesday 3rd November
  • Sunday 7th November
  • Wednesday 10th November
  • Sunday 14th November

Results will continue to be reported in the same way:

The result of every test needs to be reported using the NHS Test and Trace self-report website: https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result. Further details about how to do this are included in the instructions for use booklet.

Results (whether they are positive, negative or void) will also need to be reported to the school by completing the google form on the link below.  The link will also be available on the front page of the website:

Thank you for your support.
