Years 7 and 8 Covid-19 LFT Testing at Home

Today, on Friday 12th March, all our Year 7 and Year 8 day pupils will have their third and final Lateral Flow Device Test in school. The Foundation Health Centre team, with the assistance of staff and many current and past parent volunteers have done a fabulous job at organising and processing these tests. We are very grateful to them all.

The next stage of the Government’s plan to reduce the spread of COVID 19 is to maintain the regular testing of pupils and staff at home. Today, each day pupil in Year 7 and 8 will receive two boxes of Lateral Flow Device Tests to take home. This will be enough to complete the twice weekly testing suggested for the last two weeks of this term. Testing is not required during the holidays.

Below is various helpful documents to assist parents in understanding the process, information on how to conduct the tests and how to record the test results online.

If you do have any further questions please do contact the Health Centre on covid@deanclose.org.uk
