COVID-19

Home Testing

As the school testing draws to a close, your child will now be receiving home-testing kits: These will be sent home by class teams periodically and are to be taken on a Sunday and Wednesday evening, throughout both term-time and during the school holidays.

All the children that have been taking tests at school have done tremendously well, and we are hugely proud of how they have once again adapted to a new and unprecedented situation.

 

Accompanying the test is a ‘how to guide’, this can also be found using the link below. (Please note that students are only required to do the nasal swab, they do not have to swab their tonsils.)

The NHS have also provided a short 4 minute clip on how to use the home-testing kits:
