Pupil Home TestingPosted: 23rd March 2021
Up to one in three people who have COVID-19 can spread the virus without knowing. This is because they have no symptoms. To reduce the spread of the virus, we need to identify those individuals. The Government has recently announced that all secondary pupils will be offered tests to make the return to school safer for everyone.
Testing Pupils at home
Testing should be conducted twice a week on a Sunday and Wednesday evening. The results need to be reported 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.
