Lateral Flow Covid-19 Testing

As per the Government initiative we are facilitating Lateral Flow Testing at the Academy.

A reminder that a negative Lateral Flow Test does not mean that your child is not carrying the virus. It means they are not showing a high viral load that was picked up at the point of the test. A Negative test does not mean that any measures around Social Distancing, PPE or bubbles can be relaxed. All Government Covid-19 measures must still be followed at all times regardless of the outcome of the result.

Parents/Carers must opt in if they wish for their child to take part. This can be done by the link below:

Learners will then need to have 3 tests completed on-site in the test centre. These will be spread with 3-4 days between them.

Learners that are 11 years old or younger need an adult to administer the test. Parents/Carers will be invited onto site to do this.

Once a learner has completed 3 tests on site they will move to home testing and will be provided with the kits. Parents/Carers will be responsible for recording the test result to the NHS via the portal and also informing the Academy.
