NHS Test and Trace: COVID-19 testing and reporting for pupils

Following the announcement that there will be a wider reopening of schools and colleges from 8 March 2021, the government has confirmed its plans for regular testing for those without coronavirus symptoms.

You can read the letter to families from Helen which provides more information about the testing programme that will be in place for our school.

Reporting your results

You will need to report your result to NHS Test and Trace as soon as the test is completed either online or by telephone as per the instructions in the home test kit. Tests are free of charge and will be provided by the school. It is important that tests assigned to you are not used by anyone else.

For all families who have consented to participate in this important process, home testing kits will be distributed to pupils from Monday 22 March. Thereafter, tests will be available for you/your child to collect from the Reception office.

Please also fill the form for parental consent for COVID-19 testing in secondary schools and colleges.
