Guidance - Home test kit
Students in all year groups who have given consent for rapid home testing kits should now be familiar with taking the tests twice a week.
Tests should be taken every 3 to 5 days. It is recommended that this is done on Monday mornings (or Sunday evenings) and Thursday mornings (or Wednesday evenings). Ideally it would be on the morning before school to ensure as short a time between test and arrival as possible, but your child might want to do the test on the evening before to ensure they are able to complete it easily.
You must ensure that the results of all home tests (positive, negative and void/invalid) are reported to NHS Test and Trace, following the instructions provided with the tests. I understand that reporting from the second test onwards will be much quicker as your child’s information is stored.
Please also report any positive test result while in term time to Alice Walker at email@example.com so that we can undertake contact tracing within the school.
Families of school age children can now also access twice weekly home tests either through your employer, at a local rapid test site, by collecting home test kits from a local collection point, or by ordering home test kits online.
