All students will be receiving further home testing kits this week (w/c 26.4.21) . We need to understand the amount of Covid circulating in the (school) community. We cannot get a clear picture of COVID-19 rates within the community if tests are not reported. This includes reporting negative test results, of which most tests are. All students should share their result, whether void, positive or negative, with Test and Trace and their education setting to help with contact tracing. Reporting result helps the NHS monitor the spread of the virus, combat the virus and save lives. It also enables support to be given to communities across the UK.
Our on-site COVID 19 tests for year 7 and Year 11 have now been completed and you will now need to carry out two tests a week on your son/daughter. Your son/daughter will be bringing home two test kits today, each kit contains 3 tests. This will give you enough tests for the last two weeks of this term and the first week back after easter. Please follow the instructions carefully and if you have a positive test you must inform the school.
