Covid 19 Arrangements

 

 

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.

How the LFT tests work
If you agree for your child to take part please complete the following Parental Permission:

Parent permission LFT Years 10+11

Parental Permission Form LFT Years 7 - 9 

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 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.
