IMPORTANT: COVID-19 Home testing results

Please see the information below from the DfE regarding POSITIVE home testing results:

The DfE has confirmed that “All positive results from rapid tests undertaken at home do need to be confirmed with a standard PCR test. This is because these tests are not conducted in a controlled environment and will not have trained staff on hand. Following a positive LFD test at home, a confirmatory PCR test should be booked online or by calling 119. Whilst awaiting the PCR result, the pupil or student and their close contacts should self-isolate. If the PCR test is negative, it overrides the self-test LFD test (at home only) and a child can return to school.”

If your son or daughter has a positive test result on a LFT taken at home, please follow the above advice and guidance and notify the school ASAP
