Continued Home Lateral Flow Device (LFD) Testing - Summer Term 2

6th June 2021

Your child was provided with a further 2 x home LFD testing kits before 1/2 term as they are required to continue testing at home.

Each kit box contains 7 tests inside it with 14 x tests in total. These are for your child to use over the coming weeks. If you would like LFD kits for your family these can now be easily ordered and sent directly to you.

Tests should be undertaken every Sunday + Wednesday and test results reported via NHS. If you have a positive LFD result this should be followed up immediately with a PCR test in a community testing centre booked online or by 111 and contact should also be made to OPA via the academy reception to report a positive LFD / PCR test result.

It might be helpful if you could diarise a reminder for the next LFD home test dates. All students and staff should take an LFD today (Sunday 6th June) and can only return to school on Monday if the LFD test is negative in order to help break the COVID19 transmission chain.
