Home test kits are provided by school to students for whom parental consent was given for Covid testing. It is recommended that students test twice weekly. We advise that the home test is completed on Sunday evening before returning to school and one evening mid-week, ie, Wednesday or Thursday. The instructions for doing the test and registering the result are all provided in the kit.
If a child tests positive, please inform school (using the form above), stay at home and self-isolate.
Around 1 in 3 individuals with COVID-19 do not display symptoms. Home testing will help catch those showing no symptoms and to break the chain of transmission: Test at Home, Reduce the Spread.
Home test kits are available to collect from several locations in the Bulwell area. To find out your nearest collection site, please click on the link below.
