Please find attached letter that has been sent out regarding Lateral Flow Testing for all staff at Holbrook.
The Government is advising that all secondary aged students should be invited to take part in lateral flow testing for COVID-19 after returning to school on Monday 8 March. Up to one third of people who have coronavirus are asymptomatic. By encouraging testing we will help to reduce the spread in our schools and in the wider community through asymptomatic transmission.
At Holbrook we recognise the challenges this will present some of our students. Home testing kits are available to those parents/carers wish to test/attempt to test their child by contacting the school.
Testing is NOT mandatory and students who choose or are unable to test will still be able to attend school every day, as long as they are not displaying symptoms of coronavirus.
The attached letter was sent to all parents/carers of secondary aged students on 05.03.21.
Further help and support can be on the Government website ‘back to school’
