Covid Home Testing Links for Results

We are still encouraging all students to Lateral Flow Test at home on Sundays and Wednesdays and to report the results using the following links:

Latest government guidance for schools released 2nd January 2022 include:

  • Even if someone has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days, they are strongly encouraged to take part in LFD testing at school and/or at home once they have completed their isolation period for their prior infection.
  • Individuals may now take LFD tests on day 6 and day 7 of their self-isolation period. Those who receive two negative test results are no longer required to complete 10 full days of self-isolation. The first test must be taken no earlier than day 6 of the self-isolation period and tests must be taken 24 hours apart. If both these test results are negative, and your child does not have a high temperature, they may end their self-isolation after the second negative test result and return to their education setting from day 8. Anyone who is unable to take LFD tests will need to complete the full 10 day period of self-isolation.
  • Daily testing for close contacts of COVID-19: People who are fully vaccinated, or children and young people aged between 5 and 18 years and 6 months, identified as a close contact of someone with COVID-19, should take an LFD test every day for seven days and continue to attend their setting as normal, unless they have a positive test result or develop symptoms at any time

Please can we ask that all absences, COVID related or not are communicated via email rather than telephone to school, whenever possible. Absences should be emailed to attendance@gms.bucks.sch.uk

Students now collect a new test kit from the cupboards in reception when they run out.

Thanks for your support.
