Have you taken your Covid-19 test?

School will reopen to everyone on Monday 7th June 2021 as usual

If your child is unwell in any way, has been told they must self isolate or has been in close contact with someone during the school break who has tested positive for Covid-19, they must not come to school.

Time to take take a test (LFT)

We have been informed of a rise in the rate of positive Covid cases in a number of areas across Cheshire and in some areas, Northwich for example, surge testing has been introduced. This is where all residents are advised to get a PCR test. In some schools, students have been asked not to return after the break unless they have had a PCR test.

There is little doubt that over the coming months, home testing will play a major part in keeping our school safe and enabling our students to get back on track with their studies as we head towards summer. We are now asking all students and staff to ensure that they have had TWO negative LFT (home tests) before coming back to school on Monday. If you haven’t started your tests for this week, then please test today and Sunday

If you need to discuss any symptoms that your child or other household member may be experiencing please contact us on Nocv19@hccs.info and we will respond appropriately. We must all remain vigilant at all times and work together to keep our whole school community safe.

Registering our test registration system is easy providing you use an email address that is held by the school. If you have any problems registering, please let us know and a member of our team will be happy to help. The system can be access at: https://testregister.co.uk/login

If someone in your household tests positive using an LFT test

If someone in your household tests positive for Covid-19 using the home test kits (LFT), you should immediately isolate and arrange for a PCR test. The PCR test should be booked immediately either online or by calling 119 and should be undertaken within 2 days.

Staff, students and pupils who had a positive LFD test result, and their close contacts and other members of their household, should self-isolate immediately in line with NHS Test and Trace guidance while awaiting the PCR result. If the PCR test is negative, it overrides the LFD test and the staff member, pupil or student can return to school or college, and their close contacts can end their self-isolation.
