Home testing continues to play a crucial role, in and out of school to help protect our community against COVID-19. We would like to thank you for your continued support in completing these tests, which is testament to the near 4000 tests that have been completed since home testing started. We are aware that students are coming close to the end of their current supply of tests and wondering what will happen next. We would like to take this opportunity to confirm that LFD home testing will be continuing.
However, due to a logistical issue within the government, new supplies of tests have not arrived with us as quickly as we had hoped. We have been working hard to source more tests and can confirm more will be delivered next week. Years 12 & 13 have been issued with their next sets of testing kits and Year 11 will be issued with theirs on Friday 30 April. We aim to deliver all other year groups next week (WC 3 May) before existing test kits run out.
Can we please remind parents/carers that these test kits are to be used by students of The Bewdley School only and not for other members of the household. We supply students with enough tests to follow our testing regime on Wednesday & Sunday’s only. If other members of the household would like to take LFD tests they can be ordered online Order coronavirus (COVID-19).
We will send another communication next week to alert parent/carers when the new testing kits will be coming home with students.
