You must follow the instructions in your self-test booklet. A copy of the instructions for the COVID-19 self-testing are available to download at the bottom of this page.
After completing your home test you will need to report your results to the NHS Test and Trace system and also to the school.
To report to the NHS please go to: Report a COVID-19 rapid lateral flow test result - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

If you or your child has completed a Rapid Lateral Flow test at home and the result was POSITIVE, make sure:
Continue to self-isolate until you get the results back from the PCR test. You must follow any government advice you´re given when you get the result.
If you receive a POSITIVE PCR result, please also report this to the school using the red ´Click & Report a Positive result´ button on the front of our school website to confirm the status with us.
Should the PCR return a NEGATIVE, please also use the red ´Click & Report a Positive result´ button on the website to provide us with an update on your situation so that we may stand down anyone we have had to isolate.
