The Government has announced that there will be mass testing for pupils in secondary schools with parents and carers expected to carry out testing at home, after three tests in school. Home testing for secondary pupils will be twice weekly.
Students will be issued with a home testing kit which should last for 3-4 weeks. All students will be educated in school on the purpose and benefits of home testing. Results of home testing should be logged on the Governments track and trace website to assist with the national effort against COVID19.
