Lateral Flow Device (LFD) Testing in School
Parents/carers were previously emailed at the start of January with a request to provide consent for their son/daughter to be tested using the Lateral Flow Device (LFD) test. Thank you to all those who have responded to date. In anticipation of the mass testing of students twice (3-5 days apart) on their return when school re-opens, we do require parental consent. If you have not yet replied, please complete the consent form by following the link:
Since the last bulletin on 28 January, we have been notified of a few more cases in our school community. A member of staff at Rise@GHC received a positive result with a LFD test on 05 February, and those parents/carers were notified directly. Other cases relate to students who have been learning at home, so there are no school close contacts.
We do wish everyone affected well and a speedy recovery.
