Asymptomatic Testing Programme (Lateral Flow Tests)

Our school is participating in the Schools Asymptomatic Testing Programme which is part of the package of COVID-19 risk reduction mitigations in schools across Scotland. We have had a high uptake of this offer from S4 – S6 who have been in school over the past month and once we return after the break S1-S3 pupils can also take part. Letters were sent home last week to pupils and lateral flow test kits have been issued this week to those who returned consent forms so that pupils can test themselves before returning to school.

A copy of the letter and consent form for S1-S3 pupils with links to other information can also be found here:
