It has been great to welcome our students back to Wade Deacon which also marks the end of mass testing in school. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our marvellous volunteers from the local community and our staff, who have all worked tirelessly to help facilitate our students in receiving their tests before their return to school.
All students have now been provided with home test kits for twice weekly home testing. Each test kit contains 3 individual tests and we have provided students with 2 packs each: a total of 6 tests. The testing packs provide students with enough resources to take twice weekly testing until the Easter break. One test should be kept for use prior to students returning after Easter, with the final test to be taken on Sunday 18 April before the return to school on Monday 19 April. Ideally, we would ask that students stick with the same testing schedule and that they take their tests on a Monday and a Thursday each week.
Year 7 parents and carers please note that Y7 students will only be required to take one home test on Thursday 18th March, as they have already had their 3rd test in school on Monday 16th.
Test results must be recorded using the NHS track and trace website and each test kit will contain a helpful step by step guide providing further information on how to record results. Parents and carers will also need to notify the school of each test result, which can be done by completing this form below:
