Lateral Flow Test Letter April 2021 - LINK
All LFT results (negative, void or positive) should be reported to NHS Test Trace Protect (TTP) via the website or this link www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result each time a test is taken. There is no need to report test results to the school unless it is a positive result.

- You do not need to take the tests if you are not on site
- Test every Sunday evening and Wednesday evening after the first test

- You must report a positive test to the NHS via www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result or report by telephone 119 (page 15) (The school postcode is LL11 4HD). You are also asked to report a negative test to the NHS the same way.
