In line with the DfE School Covid 19 guidance we will be reintroducing onsite Lateral Flow testing in school in September 2021.

All learners should receive 2 on-site lateral flow tests 3-5 days apart on their return in the Autumn term.  Learners should then continue to test twice weekly at home until the end of September. 

We are expecting further information from the government regarding testing after September 2021, which will be communicated with you separately. 

The first test will take place before they return to Kepier full time, their second test will take place in school on Friday 10th September.

For their first test, learners should be onsite for no longer than 30 minutes and you will only be notified of an inconclusive or positive test result.  Learners do not need to wear their school uniform for their first test. 

Please note: We are only able to test learners who we have gained consent for, If you have not given consent, please complete the form via this link;  LFT Consent Form
