A guide to regular rapid Covid-19 testingYou are here:
All parents that have consented to test their children at home via the test kits the school provides must test twice a week. Results must be uploaded to NHS Test and Trace. Inform the school if it is positive, isolate immediately and book a PCR test to confirm this result.
Reporting the test results, including all negative and invalid test results, is just as important as undertaking the test. Effective reporting means accurate monitoring of figures by the NHS, data is less likely to be skewed and outbreaks can be more efficiently monitored and managed.
A leaflet is below that explains this, including translations in our most common languages other than English.
