We have not managed to co-ordinate a group photo of HAWI Shadowers and our Carnegie winner, so we'll let the book cover do the talking. We absolutely LOVE "The Girl Who Speaks Bear". It is an incredible story with a multitude of important themes, beautifully told! https://t.co/9gFWuk145O

Lateral Flow Testing

Questions and answers

How often will my child be tested?

The government have asked us to offer lateral flow tests to all students prior to their return to the classroom. This will be followed up by two additional lateral flow tests in school before students will be asked to test themselves at home. 

Will this help ensure more stability and face-to-face education?

Yes. Headteachers who took part in the pilot describe it as a “game-changer”.

Firstly, it will help identify asymptomatic cases - which make up a third of all cases - limiting the spread of the virus.

What will happen if my child’s test result is positive?

In the event of a positive result, the student would need to self-isolate at home for 10 days and follow the guidance from NHS Test and Trace. 

What type of tests are being used and how will they be conducted?

The tests are called Lateral Flow Tests (LFT). Students will be asked to do a throat and nose swab, which they will complete themselves, supported and supervised by a trained staff member. The tests are very straightforward, with the results available within 30 minutes.

How reliable are these tests?

There is a low chance of ‘false positive’ tests - that is why the second, lab-based PCR test is necessary. There is also a low chance that lateral flow tests don’t pick up positive cases because they aren’t as sensitive as lab-based tests. 

Will I be informed of my child’s result(s)?

You will be informed if your child’s test is positive or negative.  

Are the tests compulsory?

No but we warmly encourage everyone to participate.
