Staff Start Self-Testing
Yesterday, a couple of large boxes of tests materials arrived at school. We are used to deliveries of test resources being sent to school, but these are usually full of SATs paper for the pupils' summer exams. Times are certainly different now. These boxes contained the COVID-19 Lateral Flow tests. Starting last night, staff are now going to take two tests at different points each week to see if they are COVID positive. This is part of the nationwide testing programme. Please note: these tests have been issued by the government for staff only. For anyone showing COVID-19 symptoms, you need to take one of the other tests at a local walk-in or drive-in centre.
