Guide to Lateral Flow Device Home Testing Kits

We are pleased to be able to offer home kits for conducting lateral flow tests twice weekly for secondary aged school students.

Please read all of the information in the guidance document below so that you are fully informed about what this entails before you sign up to give your consent.

Conducting the test at home is safe, easy and, when done correctly, is as reliable as the mass testing conducted in school.

Within the guidance there is a link to a sign up form, which can also be accessed here

Please can you complete the form by 8th March 2021, answering the question regarding if you wish to take up the home testing, or if you will continue to need assistance in school. Once you have completed the form we will contact you regarding distribution of the test kits.

Thank you
