LOCKDOWN #3 RESOURCES -
GUIDANCE - LATERAL FLOW TESTS
Mass Covid-19 testing is being rolled out across all secondary schools in England.
1 in 3 people are believed to carry the virus but it is unknown as they are asymptomatic.
The use of the lateral flow tests allow asymptomatic cases to be identified and therefore hopefully reduce the spread within our Academy.
It will also mean that if your child is a close contact of a positive case, they can avoid isolating for 10 days by having a daily test.
No child will be tested without consent. Consent can be withdrawn at anytime by contacting the Academy.
You will receive a text message linking you to the appropriate form for your child. The message will be sent to the mobile number we have on file for parental/carer contact. Contact the Academy if you have recently changed your contact details.
BEFORE COMPLETING THE FORM:
► Carefully check you are completing the correct form for your child -double check the correct school and year group.
► You must fill separate forms for EACH CHILD you have at the Academy.
► A number of resources are available from NHS Test and Trace/ DfE to view on the 1st page of each form. They are also available below:
