Daily Lateral Flow Tests

Dear Parent / Carer,

 

 

Due to a further increase of cases we have consulted with the Local Authority and have been advised the following:

 

Children are recommended conduct daily lateral flow tests for 7 days.  Parents can access home lateral flow kits on the following link: www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests.  

 

Parents should report results on the government website (https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result), but there is no need for parents to report negative results to school.

 

If your child tests positive, please inform school and self-isolate in line with national guidelines.  https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/how-long-to-self-isolate/

 

Whilst it is a strong recommendation from Public Health to follow the guidance above, if parents choose not to, children will not be prohibited from attending school.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Chris McDonald 

Headteacher
