Lateral Flow Testing Continues

Lateral Flow Testing for those pupils who are engaging in the programe continues and is one of the ways that we can mitigate the spread of the virus within our school community. Although the number of cases in our areas have significantly reduced, it is essential we remain vigilant and continue to test on a regular basis.

All pupils will receive a new testing kit on a regular basis. Please contact the school if your pupil requires more tests.

The Home Testing programme requires pupils to take their lateral flow test at home. Please watch the video opposite for more information.

If you have not yet given consent for your child to partake in the testing programme, please complete the form by clicking this link -
