Lateral Flow Test Consent – Year 6-7
Dear Year 7 Parent, Carer and Student,
I hope this email finds you and your family safe and well.
Recently the Government has outlined the organisation of two lateral flow tests to be conducted for all secondary school students returning in September.
Although this process is voluntary the Government and Academies believe that it is in the best interests of all students and staff to take lateral flow tests, on the Academy site, before lessons commence.
If you give consent for your son/ daughter to participate in the lateral flow testing this will take place on Monday 6th September and then they will attend their Transition Day on Tuesday 7th September. Students will take a second test on 9th September during the normal school day. After these tests are completed, home testing will be provided by the Academy for subsequent weeks in September during which time the Government will review how they plan to move forward.
Please click on the link below and complete the form by Wednesday 28th July to give consent for your son/ daughter to participate in the lateral flow testing process. Once you have completed this then further details of your appointment time will be forwarded to you.
I have enclosed an instructional leaflet, a Data Protection FAQ sheet and a lateral Flow Testing Privacy Notice for tests conducted in school and at home. A video of the testing site can be found on the website.
If you have any further questions about our Academies lateral flow testing arrangements then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
