Will you be testing children for COVID-19?
Currently there are no plans for testing children in primary schools. Schools (other than boarding schools) cannot test for COVID or any other medical condition.
We have some home testing kits from the Department of Health and Social Care and Department of Education. These are for exceptional use only. They can be provided to a member of staff, parent or carer when a child or adult develops symptoms while they are here in school AND they are unable to access a test any other way.
