Home Testing

By the end of Thursday 18th March, all pupils will have received their 'test at home' kits.  These tests do not need permission or consent as by opening and using the test you are giving consent.  We would recommend the pupils test twice a week (possibly Sunday night and Wed night).  All help and guidance is within the test kits. A positive LFD result will still require a confirmatory PCR test from the NHS.  If a pupil tests positive on the LFD test (the test at home kit) they must remain isolated until the result of a PCR test.  If the PCR test is positive they must isolate following NHS guidelines, if it is negative they can return to school.  This ruling only applies to LFD tests carried out at home.
