Covid-19 Testing for staff
The Sports Hall has been turned into our asymptomatic test centre. If you would like a lateral flow test at school you must book an appointment below. There will be a home testing kit (labelled with your name) ready for you to collect at the time of your appointment so you can continue your testing at home. Some staff may need to continue to be tested in the testing centre until more home testing kits arrive. You need to complete two tests a week, three to five days apart.
If you would like to book a test at the test centre please book your appointment below.
Tuesday 2 March, 1.30 - 4pm: Bay 1 to 6
Wednesday 3 March, 08.00-10.00, 10.30-12.00, 12.30-14.00 and 14.30-16.00: Bay 1, 2 and 3
Friday 5 March, 08.30-09.30: Bay 1 to 6
Monday 8 March, 08.00-08.30: Bay 1 to 6
Wednesday 10 March, 08.00-08.45: Bay 3 to 6
Friday 12 March, 08.00-08.45: Bay 3 to 6
If you book your test at least 24 hours before it takes place you will be pre-registered but it would be a good idea to have your phone with you anyway. If you book your test less than 24 hours beforehand you will need your phone to register at the test centre. When you book your appointment below, it will ask for your name, email and telephone number but you don't need to include your telephone number. Below you can download a diagram showing how the test is administered.
If you no longer need your appointment please remember to cancel it in good time (as early as possible but ideally at least 24 hours before it is due).
If you have received a positive PCR test within the last 90 days, we do not recommend lateral flow testing as there is a significant likelihood of receiving a false positive.
Please remember this is an asymptomatic test centre and if you experience any of the three main covid-related symptoms you should not attend school for your test or for any other reason.
If you have any queries please email Rebecca Evans or Susan Newing. Thank you for your support.
