Self Testing

Covid Home Testing

It is being recommended that the home testing process for Covid-19 continues for the present, and we are continuing to issue kits to all individuals at the academy

You can carry out the tests at a time that is convenient for yourselves, but our suggestion is that the tests are carried out Sunday evening/Monday morning prior to coming into the academy, with the second test that week three days after that, so Wednesday evening/Thursday morning.

As before the testing kits include the instructions as to how to carry out these tests. Please read these carefully before carrying out the test.

There is also available an online copy of the COVID-19 self-test instructions 

A video showing the process is available here

When completing the test there is an NHS website included in the guide for the test results to be registered with.

We also ask that you complete this online form, with the name and tutor group of the pupil taking the test, the reference number from the LFD, together with the date and result of the test which will notify the academy of the result of the test.

Kits will be available, and issued, for all students, regardless of whether consent for testing in the academy was given as we know that in some cases the withholding of consent was due to taking the test in the academy, not necessarily a reluctance to take a test.

Confirmatory PCR testing following a test at home

If you did a rapid lateral flow test at home and the result was positive:

Continue to self-isolate until you get the result of the PCR test. Follow the advice you're given when you get the result.
