Home Covid Testing Kits

23rd Mar

All students have been issued with a further supply of lateral flow tests today. If your child has not been in school today and needs to collect further tests please let them know they should ask their form tutor when they return to school. We have received the following instructions from the Department of Education in regard to lateral flow testing for students while at home over the Easter break.

· Test twice a week at home from now on (all those who are able to) · report results online as positive, negative or void. This information is critical in helping us to understand the prevalence of the virus across the country

· Inform Monk’s Walk School if your test is positive – use the following email address

· Continue to test twice weekly over the Easter holidays

· Test before returning to school or college for the summer term, either the night before, or morning of, the first day back, to find and isolate any positive cases

The last bullet point is particularly important and one test should be held and taken on the Sunday evening of the 11th April or on the Monday morning of the 12th April BEFORE returning to school.

Thank you for your support and all you are doing to help us, wishing you all a very enjoyable Easter break
