NHS Test and Trace: COVID-19 testing for staff and pupils
The Greenwood Academies Trust is working to keep our Academies as safe as possible.
You may have heard that testing for those without coronavirus symptoms is beginning across the country using new, quicker COVID-19 tests known as ‘lateral flow tests’.
Along with the other protective measures we are taking, these tests will help staff and pupils to remain in school safely. Up to one third of people who have coronavirus experience no symptoms. By testing we will help to stop the virus spread and help to keep our Academies open as safely as possible. The test is voluntary.
We will be testing all staff and secondary school age students who want to participate from week commencing 18 January 2021.
