Covid 19 Self-testing

Thursday 18th February 2021

Dear Parent/Carer

As you will be aware a key part of the process for re-opening schools to more staff and students is the offer of Covid-19 self-testing to all staff and senior phase students.  We have now received our test kits and are pleased to now be able to offer this service to our staff and students.

Testing is entirely voluntary and is aimed at identifying anyone who is asymptomatic for Covid-19.  Please see attached the following documents:

in the testing programme please read the parent letter and complete the consent form – please note students over the age of 16 can complete the consent form themselves.  The form must be submitted before tests can be issued and should be brought by the student when they come to collect their first test.  Please see the attached collection schedule for the initial collection times.  These will be amended/expanded depending on uptake and the pattern of young people’s attendance in schools.

Yours faithfully

Diane Burgess

Depute Head Teacher
