Move to Home Testing

 Students should take the Lateral Flow Device test twice a week on a Wednesday and a Sunday starting from the 17th March. Ideally, they should not eat or drink 30-minutes prior to completing the test. All results must be recorded through the NHS track and trace system (including negative ones). An updated booklet describes how to do this as well as to how to carry out the test from start to finish. Further information and the NHS privacy notice can be found here.

Please also complete the below school online form to inform us that the test has been completed and is a negative result. Should the test be positive please contact the school urgently via covid@saintedmunds.org.uk with a copy of the positive text result and the name/tutor group of the student. You must then get a full PCR test through https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test.

If your child is ill at all, then err on the side of caution and keep at home until they are fully week. If they have Covid symptoms then you must keep them at home and should book a PCR test.
