-Student Covid-19 Testing programme

Covid-19 National Testing Programme

The in-school testing programme for students is now complete. Staff continue to test at home twice weekly. We will retain a small testing centre in school for any staff or students who cannot test at home.

If your child has tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 90 days, they do not need to be tested.

The home testing programme is to identify students who are asymtpomatic and may be carrying the virus. If your child has symptoms or tests positive with a PCR test, please do not send them into school. You should follow government guidance and they should self-isolate for 10 days.

Please email covidpositivetest@glossopdale.school if your child tests positive. This inbox is monitored at evenings, weekends and during the school holidays. 

Home Testing 22nd March onwards

Students will need to take a test twice a week at home from 22nd March, including over the Easter holidays.
