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:

What to do if your 12-15 year-old child missed their appointment at school to receive their Covid vaccination?

If for any reason your child missed the opportunity to receive their vaccination at school, or were declined their vaccination because they tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 12 weeks, you have the following alternative options. You will need to accompany your child to any venues offering the vaccination to give consent:

Booking vaccination appointments online

You can book your child’s 1st dose online from the day they turn 12. You can usually book their 2nd dose from 24 hours after they had their 1st dose. You’ll be offered appointment dates from 12 weeks after their 1st dose. Book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment

Getting the vaccine at a walk-in vaccination site

Your child can get a 1st dose at a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site from the day they turn 12. They can get a 2nd dose if it’s been 12 weeks since their 1st dose. Find a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site
