Our Covid testing site is now up and running. Thank you to all the dedicated staff who have helped make this happen.
Up to a third of individuals who test positive for COVID-19 have no symptoms at all and can therefore spread the virus unknowingly. That is why testing those without symptoms is vital. Identifying those individuals will save lives.
The ‘Lateral flow’ devices used for rapid testing do not require a laboratory to process the test, therefore, results are provided soon after testing has taken place. This enables us to keep our academy as safe as possible.
Please continue to listen to government advice and stay at home if you are presenting any Covid symptoms. The tests are for those who are asymptomatic.
Staff working from the academy have now been tested. Student testing will commence next week.
