NHS Test and Trace: COVID-19 Testing for Staff
Testing for those without coronavirus symptoms is beginning across the country using new, quicker
COVID 19 tests known as ‘lateral flow devices’.
Below is some information about the testing programme at The Castle School.
Along with the other protective measures we are taking, testing will allow us to take further
measures to help staff members to remain in school. Up to one third of people who
have coronavirus are asymptomatic. By testing we will help to reduce the spread in school through
asymptomatic transmission. We therefore encourage those working in school to be tested, however
this is a voluntary process.
The current recommendation from the DfE is that staff members (who are working in school on that day) are tested. Staff members can be tested twice weekly until further notice.
