Covid-19 Testing

IMPORTANT: Please ensure that your child continues to test at home twice weekly on Wednesday and Sunday using the Lateral Flow Device tests they are given during the in-school testing at the start of term.

If you have run out of LFD tests you can collect a box from reception between 9am-3pm.

Remember to log all results on the Test Register and Government websites;
any Positive cases should be reported t0 the school.
We need to keep working together to keep each other safe.
