Student Covid-19 LFD testing weeks beginning 15th March and 22nd March

Dear Student/Parent/Guardian,

Following a negative test result this week, we are asking students to book 2 further onsite tests, one for each week beginning 15th March and 22nd March. Tests should be booked 3-5 days apart and must be booked on either a non-timetabled day or after lessons have ended for the day. They must not be booked either before or during a timetabled lesson.

Once 3 on-site tests have been completed a student will be eligible to collect home testing kits to continue testing weekly from home.

If you have had COVID-19 in the last 90 days you do not need to book LFD tests. 

Students are also able to book a test through Essex County Council at community testing centres.

Testing is not compulsory, but encouraged for all even if you have received the vaccination to assist in identifying asymptomatic cases of the virus.
