You do it to yourself

Sixth Form students were today issued with kits for self-administered Covid-19 testing to be carried out on Tuesday and Friday evenings. It is important to remember that rapid regular testing offers a reliable and effective additional tool to help keep schools safe by identifying people who have no symptoms and can be spreading coronavirus without realising it.

The process of testing is very straightforward and students will have already carried out a test under adult supervision. Please click on the link if guidance or a reminder is needed – A short video with guidance on the process of testing

Please note that any student who has tested positive within the last 90 days does not need to be tested.

The bar code on each individual test strip should be used to register the test result with the NHS:-

Report a COVID-19 rapid lateral flow test result
