Latest Covid-19 Update
The latest Government Guidance on what to do if your child has COVID-19 symptoms or has a positive test result - Stay at home: guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
Covid Testing at Home
We have sent home Covid-19 testing kits with your child. Each kit contains 3 tests, please make sure your child is tested twice a week 3-4 days apart, in the morning before school if possible and if not the evening before. A good routine would be each Wednesday and each Sunday. Your child should also continue testing twice a week, at home. Details of how to take the test are available inside the kits and clear instructions are provided in the Powerpoint ‘Testing at Home’, click here: https://sway.office.com/MZSmWMKkxkMixKpn?ref=Link
If your child has not been tested at school yet, then please contact your child’s Year group team so that we can arrange a time for them to be tested on site, before beginning home testing.
Reporting Test Results
It is really important that all results of tests are reported online straight away, even if your child’s result is negative or void and it’s easy to do. Students can input their results via TestRegister.co.uk by entering their school email address and requesting a login. Students will then receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org containing a link to TestRegister.co.uk which will allow them to input their results.
Please be aware there is a Step 2 process of reporting a result on TestRegister.co.uk which will redirect students to www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result If you have any issues reporting your result via this method please be aware results can also be reported via telephone by calling 119 (free from mobiles and landlines). Lines are open every day, 7am to 11pm.
The process of how to record your child’s results is clearly outlined in the attached PowerPoint ‘Reporting a Test Result on TestRegister.co.uk', please visit: https://sway.office.com/4h0ImDVD8YqQMLLQ?ref=Link
