Lateral Flow Device Testing
The government has issued our school with Lateral Flow Device (LFD) testing kits for Covid19, along with training for the staff who will administer the tests on our premises. The idea is to capture those people who are positive for Covid19 but do not know it yet. They have asked us to test all staff and children twice weekly and we have been doing that since January 21. This test gives a result within half an hour which means we are able to react to positive cases very quickly and restrict the spread. Before we begin testing your child, it is important that you give consent for this to happen, and understand the data protection issues, as it also means we will enter data about your child on the track and trace website when we register their result.
