The Government has recently announced that all secondary and college aged students will be offered tests to make the return to school safer for everyone.
As we move to the next phase of the testing programme and issue every pupil with their first home testing kit we want to set out some key information below:
- Tests are free of charge.
- Students will receive an initial pack of three tests in a box.
- We would like the students to take their tests twice a week, on Sunday evening and Wednesday evening.
- You will need to report test results to the NHS and we also need you to inform the school of the result of each test.
