Test kits for adults in households with school and college age children

NHS Test and Trace announced earlier this week that all adults in households with school and college aged children without symptoms can now access regular rapid coronavirus (COVID-19) testing.

Tests are fast, easy and completely free. There are different ways for a household, childcare or support bubble to collect their test to take at home, twice-weekly:

  • through your employer, if they offer testing to employees
  • by collecting a home test kit from a local test site – anyone aged 18 or over can collect 2 packs of 7 tests – click here for more information
  • by ordering a home test kit online – please do not order online if you can access testing through other routes, this frees up home delivery for those who need it most – click here for more information

If you have any queries about the tests, and you live in England, please call 119 (free from mobiles and landlines). Lines are open every day from 7am to 11pm.

‘The Big Difference Scheme’ – Severn Trent Water

The Big Difference Scheme is funded by Severn Trent Water, and offers significantly reduced water charges to some households on a low income, including those eligible for free school meals.

For further information and details on how to apply, please click here …


Please remember that results of student lateral flow home tests must be reported to NHS Test and Trace.  It is also good practice to report test results to us at school, as this may help us to identify whether there are any specific issues with certain batches of test kits.  There are quick links NHS Test and Trace and the School Report Form right at the top of each page of our website in red. 

For more information see the Covid menu and then click on Lateral Flow Testing at school/home.
