We have been asked to share information regarding testing over the Easter holidays.  Please find attached useful documents to help explain the expectations.  Critically, students should continue with lateral flow device testing (LFD) over the Easter break and reserve one test for the evening of Sunday 18th April in preparation for the return to school on 19th April.  Students have been issued with 2 LFD boxes for the school holidays.  Please submit the results to the NHS via their website and also complete the school’s Microsoft Form – link on the school website front page.  The government has just changed the policy for a follow up PCR test should your son/daughter test positive.  Any person with a positive home LFD test must begin isolating and book a confirmatory PCR test which should be taken within 48 hours; the timing is critical.   It is important that any positive test is also reported to the Local Authority during the holidays using the


email address to enable us to assist with contact tracing.

Thank you for your assistance in this drive to keep our community as safe as possible.

Have a very Happy Easter.
