Torfaen Information for September 21
Lateral Flow Testing (LFT)
All students are able to take lateral flow tests twice a week- on Thursday mornings and Monday mornings.
Tests are free of charge and will be provided by the school ( once term starts).
How the LFT tests work
Your child would conduct the test, at home on a Thursday morning and a Monday morning. The LFTs supplied do not require laboratory processing and can provide a quick result in around 30 minutes. Comprehensive guidance on self-testing is contained in the ‘Instructions for Use’ leaflet which comes with the test kit. There are further resources and guides on the Welsh Government Online site.
Once the test has been conducted you or your child will log the test result online at https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result and need to also, separately, inform the school of the test result through the following links:
You will also receive a text/email notification of a positive or negative result from NHS Test & Trace.
