Dear Parent / Carer March 2021
Home Covid-19 test kits to enable students to self-test twice weekly
Our third and last phase of on-site lateral flow testing for students began this morning. Uptake has been very high and we are impressed and proud of how well girls have navigated the process. I’m also very pleased to report that to date all test results have been negative. I trust this builds the confidence of students as it has done of staff during our return to classroom teaching.
As you know, the requirement for twice weekly testing (students and staff) continues but on the completion of their third on-site test students are being issued with home kits to enable them to continue the process at home. I refer parents / carers to a very detailed letter on the subject e-mailed to you this morning. The letter contains all the links you need to access further guidance (e.g. instructions in other languages, a video demonstration etc.) as well as those necessary to report test results both to NHS Test and Trace and to WCHS. The letter, and all these links, are also available to you on the school website.
Doubtless students will tire of the twice weekly task of home testing which has to be done over the Easter holiday as well as in term time. I thank you in advance for your encouragement and praise of them as they play their part in preventing the resurgence of Covid-19 at Woodford and thus enabling the continuation of on-site education.
