Lateral Flow Tests
Great News - our Lateral Flow Tests have arrived. (04/05/21)
We are pleased to announce that our Lateral Flow Tests have arrived. We want to get these out to students today to bring home:
- Year 7-10 students will receive them as they leave the school site this afternoon, which enables us to ensure that students leave with a test kit.
- Year 11 students will be leaving at various times due to their Summer Assessments so these will be given out during the school day.
To help maintain the detection of asymptomatic cases please could your son(s) complete a Lateral Flow Test before school tomorrow, ensure that any positive case is reported immediately by emailing. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now that parents are allowed to order tests for their children, we encourage you to do so in case our next delivery is also delayed. Follow this link to make an order if you have not already done so: https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests
If your son is absent or failed to pick up his test kit on the way out of school, please phone in to share this information. We can arrange a suitable time for you to collect them from reception or work with you to get the kits home to you.
NB For parents who have opted out of testing
Our priority is to ensure students are provided with tests; therefore, your son might be given tests to bring home. If this happens, please accept our apologies, we would rather all students brought them home instead of missing someone out. If you want to return them your son simply needs to bring them unopened to reception.
