Dear Parents/Carers,

We had amazing attendance yesterday and despite the horrible weather there was a lovely atmosphere in school. To help further ensure the safety of our community, please can I ask that you to read the important information below about the next phase of the Covid testing programme.

Testing for Covid at Home

Tomorrow, the students will be issued with some Covid Home Test Kits. Students will watch a training video tomorrow and 99% of them were shown how to complete the tests when they came in earlier this week. However, students will also be given a really good and easy to follow instruction booklet should you need help. The following demonstration video is also available on our website: How to do a COVID-19 Self Test 

The stocks we have has enabled us to supply Y7 - 11 students enough tests to last until Easter. Sixth form will be issued with their first 3 tests and will be issued more shortly.

Key points

Testing is voluntary, but we are strongly advising all students to take the tests.

Please can you ensure students test twice each week, once on Sunday evening (or early Monday morning) and again on Thursday evening (or early Friday morning).

You only need to report a positive test or a void test to us. Please do this by emailing testing@liskeard.cornwall.sch.uk and calling Reception on 01579 342344.

You should also report your test results to the NHS either online or by phone. Details on how to do this are in the booklet.

If your child has had Covid in the last 90 days they should not complete the tests as there is a high chance of them receiving a false positive result.

Obviously, in the case of a positive test the household will need to isolate and the person testing positive should get a standard PCR test. This is because a PCR test is more accurate. If the PCR test comes back negative, then the child can return to school.

Please note that the test kits issued are for our students only. Home test kits for other family members can be acquired via the testing centre in Westbourne Carpark, West Street, Liskeard or via this link: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/rapid-lateral-flow-testing-for-households-and-bubbles-of-school-pupils-and-staff

If you have any questions relating to Covid and the home tests, please email us at: testing@liskeard.cornwall.sch.uk


Kind regards,

Alex Lingard
