Lateral Flow Testing
NHS Test and Trace: COVID-19 testing for staff and students
We are working to keep our Academy as safe as possible. Testing for those without coronavirus symptoms is beginning across the country using new, quicker COVID-19 tests known as ‘lateral flow tests’. Along with the other protective measures we are taking, these tests will help staff and students to remain in school safely. Up to one third of people who have coronavirus experience no symptoms. By testing we will help to stop the virus spread and help to keep our Academy open as safely as possible. The test is voluntary, but we encourage everyone to take it.
Before students can be tested, they need to complete this Consent Form. This can be completed electronically and emailed to us at email@example.com or printed and returned to the Academy Reception.
