COVID Testing

COVID Testing


School has been provided with a small number of testing kits. These will be provided only in exceptional circumstances when:


  • an individual becomes symptomatic.
  • school believes the individual may have barriers to accessing testing elsewhere.


Anyone who displays symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) can and should get a test. These symptoms are:


  • a high temperature 
  • a new, continous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste


Test Results

Positive result

If a pupil has a positive test result, they must self-isolate immediately and continue to self-isolate for at least 10 days from when their symptoms started. Everyone in their household or support bubble must also isolate for 14 days. 


Negative resut

A negative results means the person did not test positive for COVID-19. At that point, they no longer need to self-isolate and can return to school as long as:

  • everyone they live with who has symptoms tests negative
  • everyone in their support bubble who has symptoms tests negative
  • they were not told to self-isolate for 14 days by NHS Test and Trace
  • they feel well – if they feel unwell, stay at home until they’re feeling better, if they have diarrhoea or are being sick, they should stay at home until 48 hours after they’ve stopped

Regardless of any test result, members of staff and students should continue to isolate if:

This is because they may still develop symptoms during the isolation period.
