Mass Testing

We are pleased to let you know that be will be offer­ing rapid COVID test­ing when stu­dents return to school. This will mean only those who test pos­i­tive will need to self-​isolate.

The new test is called a lat­eral flow test, and gives a result in 30 min­utes. Stu­dents will be asked to test them­selves and will be sup­ported by a team of staff and par­ent vol­un­teers. The video below offers more infor­ma­tion on this type of testing.

The key objec­tives to test­ing all staff/​students are to reduce the trans­mis­sion of Covid within the school and reduce the num­ber of peo­ple need­ing to self-​isolate.

More infor­ma­tion on the mass Covid test­ing can be found here, within the ded­i­cated Covid Test­ing folder.
