Testing Procedure 

We are looking forward to seeing our KS3 pupils on Thursday 4th and Friday 5th March - please note the following: 


We need all pupils to attend their appointment time promptly and remain socially distanced at all times. Mask wearing is required.  


  1. Pupils will need to enter through the KS3 gate (which will be staffed) and make their way to the gym where the test will take approximately 5 minutes.  

  2. Pupils are required to leave school straight after taking the test. 

  3. To exit the school grounds, pupils will use the KS2 gate (which will be staffed). 


If there is a positive result, parents will be informed immediately. In this instance, as the test has been carried out at a Test Site, there is no need to seek a PCR test- isolation for the household should commence immediately.
