Pupil On-site Testing

Pupil Home Testing - COVID.

The Government has recently announced that all secondary and college aged students will be offered tests to make the return to school safer for everyone. We have now completed the onsite testing. Up to one in three people who have COVID-19 can spread the virus without knowing. This is because they have no symptoms. To reduce the spread of the virus, we need to identify those individuals. We can do this at The Snaith School by carrying out tests at home twice every week, 3-4 days apart.

Home test kits are free of charge and will be given to students this week. Students will receive two packs of 3 tests in a box, which will last up to the Easter holidays. Students will also be given a leaflet on how to take the test and report the results.

We would like them to take their tests before school on Sunday and Wednesday evenings each week. By doing the test in the evening, hopefully this will make sure you have enough time to do the test before going to school.

Taking the test

We have given pupils a leaflet with instructions on how to do the test with the kit.

Further help and support can be found here including instructions in different languages on how to test and report the results and a video showing you how to take the test. There is no need to keep used test equipment after the test result has been reported. You can put it in your normal bin (household waste). 

Please note his does not replace symptomatic testing. If you have symptoms, you should self- isolate immediately, book a PCR test and follow national guidelines.

 Self Test Instructions

What should you do after the test?

You need to report your result to both NHS Test and Trace and to the school.

You can report the result to the school here: click here 

You should report the result to the NHS: click here

If anyone tests positive you, your household, any support bubbles you are part of should self-isolate immediately in line with NHS Test and Trace guidance for 10 days.

You should also order a confirmatory PCR test if you are testing at home (confirmatory PCR tests are not needed if the test was conducted at the Asymptomatic Test Site at School).

Negative and void results should be reported to both NHS Test & Trace and to the school.

A negative result does not guarantee that you are not carrying the virus. So, you should continue to follow social distancing, and other measures to reduce transmission such as wearing a face mask and regularly washing your hands and observing social distancing.

If you or anyone in your household gets symptoms of the virus you should follow national guidelines on self-isolation and testing.

Taking part in testing is voluntary and all students will be able to attend school whether they take part in testing or not.

We are strongly encouraging all students to take part. Testing at home will allow your child and other students to attend school as safely as possible.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about home testing.
