Coronavirus - Re-Opening Information
Testing students at home
Please note that home testing is voluntary and the taking of the test itself is giving consent.
We would like them to take their tests on a Sunday and Wednesday evening.
If students require anymore tests, please collect them from reception.
You will also need to communicate the result of each test to both NHS Test & Trace and school.
Tests are free of charge. Students will receive a pack of 7 tests in a box with a leaflet on how to take the test and report the results.
Before you commence testing please watch the How To videos here Step by step guide to COVID-19 self-testing - YouTube
- All results (positive/negative/void) must be reported to the national test and trace website and to school.
- Log your result with Test and Trace at www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result
- We have a statutory duty to keep a register of results in school also. Please also record every result using this form.
- If you are recording a positive result please also contact the email@example.com by email asap so we can carry out the contact tracing process together. You should begin a 10 day period of isolation immediately as should those in your household.
Please see the latest information and guidance in the attached documents below.
