Many thanks for your continued support with home testing. To support you with this, all eligible students will be given a new box of home testing kits during Registration this week. Students who have tested positive within the last 90 days should not take one.

Please be aware that we have been provided with Flowflex tests this time. These tests should be taken with a nasal swab only – no throat swabbing. If this is a problem for your child, please let me know and I will provide them with a pack of the Innova tests.

The method of processing the tests is different to what we have been used to, so please follow the instructions included in the pack and in particular be aware of the advice regarding eating and drinking on page 7.
Please remember that results should be reported to both school and the NHS, links available on the website, and we would appreciate your child  continuing to test twice a week.
If you have any queries, please contact Mrs Thompson by email:
