Covid-19 Asymptomatic Testing (Lateral Flow Testing - In School and At Home)
The government have announced that schools will offer Lateral Flow Tests for Covid-19 to all secondary age students and staff from Monday 8 March. For students the first three tests will be conducted on-site to allow supervision and support students with the process. Following the third test on-site students will be provided with home testing kits. The home test kits will allow students to self administer tests twice weekly from home. All staff will be able to participate in lateral flow testing at home from Monday 8 March.
We are asking all families to complete this form to indicate if you consent to your child participating or not.
Please complete this form below by Saturday 27 February 2021 to allow us time to prepare for testing and the wider reopening of schools which takes place week commencing Monday 8 March 2021. We will be providing more information regarding this in due course.
