Lateral Flow Tests
We would like to remind everyone about the importance of regularly testing for COVID using the Lateral Flow tests provided to all students, testing should ideally be done every Sunday and Wednesday. It is important to highlight these tests are for people with NO symptoms, and cannot replace a PCR test. If a student has a positive result from a lateral flow test you should inform the school via the email@example.com email address and take the child for a PCR test as soon as possible.
When to Book a PCR Test
If a student is showing symptoms such as:
- a high temperature;
- a new, continuous cough;
- or a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste.
They must get a PCR test as soon as possible, you can book via https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test Please do not use a Lateral Flow Test as a replacement for a PCR test if someone is displaying any COVID symptoms.
