Student Home Testing using Lateral Flow Tests

Children of parents/carers who consented for COVID-19 testing should have now brought home with them home testing kits.

We are asking that students carry out a home test twice a week, on Wednesday and Sunday evenings each week. Please ensure that you understand the testing process and have read the Privacy Notice about how your information will be used. Home testing involves committing to students self-administering the test and reporting the results on the NHS Track & Trace digital platform and to the Academy.
