Taking and reporting a Lateral Flow Test
- Please refer to the ‘Step by Step’ booklet issued by the NHS for instructions on how to take a test. Remember not to eat or drink anything in the 30 minutes before taking a test as this can spoil the test result. Wait 30 minutes once the test is taken before you read the result.
- Report the result to the NHS and to school. To report negative or void results to school please use the following link:
Positive results must be reported to school immediately (by phoning reception during school hours or via email@example.com). You and your household and anyone in your support bubble must follow national and local guidance with regards self-isolating, and you must arrange a confirmatory PCR test to be taken by the person that tested positive.
If you have any queries regarding the testing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
