COVID 19 Lateral Flow Testing Information
In line with the latest Covid 19 Government guidelines, all students on their return to the school site will be encouraged to take part in Lateral Flow Testing.
Lateral Flow Testing- At Home
As the in-school Lateral Flow Testing (LFT) of students enters its final phase, we are now commencing the roll-out of home testing kits. Your child(ren) will be issued with their kits at the same time as they undertake their third in-school test. Kits consist of two boxes, each containing three home tests, and an Instructions for Use (IFU) leaflet. Tests should be conducted twice weekly approximately 3 – 5 days apart and therefore each kit contains sufficient tests to last three weeks. All students should be able to self-administer the test, although younger children may require some help.
