On Friday the Department for Education announced that secondary schools should plan to test all students once on their return to school after the Christmas break.
It is some time since we collected parental consent for Covid 19 lateral flow testing in school. We would appreciate it if you could complete the consent form by clicking on the link below if you wish your child to take the self-swab lateral flow test in school at the start of next term. https://landauforte.wufoo.com/forms/consent-form-for-covid19-testing/ The closing date for providing consent is Friday, 10 December 2021.
Please note, participating in the Covid 19 lateral flow testing is optional. If you want to withdraw testing at any time you can email [email protected] .I have attached the privacy testing statement which explains how we will use your/ your child’s data, please do take time to read through this document. If your child is over 16 they can self-consent but we would still encourage parents/ carers to discuss participation with their child.
We would also ask that families continue with the twice weekly Covid 19 testing at home, reporting any positive lateral flow tests to the school via [email protected]
Schedule for lateral flow testing next term
Monday, 3 January 2022 We ask that all students take a lateral flow test at home before returning to school the next day.
Tuesday, 4 January 2022 All students return to school at the normal start time of 8.20am. Year 12 and 13 students can ‘drop in’ to the theatre at any point during the day for their lateral flow test. All other students who have consented to take a lateral flow test will attend the theatre for testing on a rota basis.
