Covid-19 – Staff Testing at Home


COVID-19 Home Testing for Staff

Along with the other protective measures we are taking, testing will allow us to take further measures to help you and staff members to learn and work in as safe an environment as possible. Up to one in three people who have Covid-19 have the virus without symptoms so could be transmitting the virus unknowingly. Tackling the pandemic requires identifying asymptomatic, infectious individuals. By testing, we will help to reduce the spread in our academies and local communities.

Lateral Flow Tests

Lateral flow tests will be issued to students by their form tutors.  Sixth Form students can pick up their test kits in PPD. Tests should be taken at home EVERY Sunday and Wednesday. Here’s a video guide which shows how to complete a test at home.

Tests can also be ordered free from the Gov.uk website https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests
