Lateral Flow Testing
Students in Years 10 and 11 are able to take lateral flow tests twice a week- on Wednesdays and Sundays.
How the tests work
If you agree for your child to take part please complete the following Parental Permission.
This will allow us to give your child a LFD test kit which will enable self-testing from home. Your child would conduct the test, at home on a Wednesday after 5pm and a Sunday after 6pm. The LFDs 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 and can been seen Self Test Instructions. There are further resources and guides on the Welsh Government Online Document Platform which we, as a setting, have access to.
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 Lateral Flow Test Results Reporting
You will also receive a text/email notification of a positive or negative result from NHS Test & Trace.
Tests are free of charge and will be provided by the school.
