Testing for staff in school

The Department for Education has recently announced that it will start a programme of asymptomatic Covid-19 testing for all staff in primary schools. The aim is to identify  those who have Covid-19 virus without any symptoms so could be transmitting the virus unknowingly. The aim of this testing is to identify cases which would have previously gone undetected and, so, reduce the spread in schools.

Later this week, our staff will start self-testing twice a week using a lateral flow test. If anyone tests positive, we will ask close contacts to isolate at home, which could mean a bubble closing, until the result can be confirmed by a PCR test this may lead to some disruption. We will use emails to advise you of any such changes so please be alert to these communications.
