• Students are requested to complete two COVID-19 lateral flow home tests per week, three to four days apart.
  • These should be conducted either in the morning before attending school or the previous evening.
  • Suggested would be to complete tests at home on Monday morning & Thursday morning, for example.
  • Follow the detailed instructions contained within the leaflet in your testing kit bag, rather than inside the testing kit itself as these are out of date.
  • Students aged 11 should have their home test administered by an adult.
  • Students aged 12-17 should be supervised by an adult but can swab themselves.

You must then register your result, whether negative, positive or void, in two places - with the NHS Track & Trace system and with the School's internal tracking system.
