Secondary Pupils – Home Testing Easter Holidays

Throughout this term, we have been completing lateral flow tests in school twice a week. It is important for pupils to keep testing through the Easter holidays to manage the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), as part of a regular habit of testing at home every 3-4 days (twice a week). We suggest that tests are carried out on a Monday and a Friday.

 

Pupils will receive a pack of 3 or 7 tests in a box with a leaflet on how to take the test and report the results. The result of each test needs to be reported using the NHS Test & Trace self-report

Parents will also need to tell the school the result of each test, if they are positive through the school email: Linkschool@schools.sunderland.gov.uk.

The Link School will then return to twice weekly assisted lateral flow tests in school for the Summer Term.
