Covid Home-Testing

 
As lockdown eases, taking a rapid COVID-19 test twice a week, even if you do not have symptoms, will help us stay ahead of the spread of the virus, particularly as new strains appear. Around 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 have no symptoms and are spreading the virus without knowing. This includes those who have had their vaccine. 

Please continue to encourage your child or children to test twice-weekly. 

The result of a rapid test could be positive, negative or even void. But, whatever it is, it should be reported straight away, every time. Recording all test results helps scientists stay ahead of the virus by spotting new outbreaks quickly and advising how to respond. 

Reporting results is easy. Use the link below or call 119 free from a mobile or landline. Lines are open every day, 7am to 11pm.

Please also remember to report your child’s result to the College by selecting the link for your child’s year group in the chart further down this page.

If you have a positive result it is really important that you let us know straight away by also emailing testresult@thespirescollege.com.  Please use this email address let us know if you have reported the wrong result either to the government or via the college reporting system.
