Home Testing during the Easter Break

Dear Parents/Carers,

Home Testing during the Easter Break

Despite several requests to the DfE, we are still waiting for our next delivery of home testing kits and are hoping they will arrive before the end of today.  If they do not, you can obtain kits in a number of different ways – ordering a postal delivery or collecting in person from a local pick up point.  You can also book a test at a local testing centre.

Positive Test Result

DfE and Public Health England have asked schools to continue to act as track and trace for any positive cases reported to them.  Of course, we hope this is not the case, but if your child tests positive for Covid during the break, could I please ask you, in addition to logging on testresult ( and the NHS website, to also email the school at

Please title the email ‘POSITIVE CASE’ and include the following information:-

  • Your child’s full name and year group
  • Details of symptoms and when they started
  • The last date your child attended school
  • The date of the positive test

This will enable us to contact other students or staff if necessary and we will telephone you if we require any further details from you.

If you receive contact from the school regarding your child needing to self-isolate, please see NHS guidance here for what this means.

With thanks for your ongoing efforts to help keep the school and community as safe as possible.

Wishing you a safe and restful break,

P Naudi
