Lateral Flow Tests

How to get a lateral flow test as a household or support bubble of primary or secondary age school children and staff

As part of our safety measures, staff and regular visitors in school will continue to use lateral flow test (LFT) tests (throat and nasal swabs) to test twice a week. As part of the government’s roadmap to lift restrictions, they are now extending the offer to the following people in England as schools and colleges reopen:

  • households, childcare and support bubbles of primary and secondary-age pupils and college students
  • households, childcare and support bubbles of staff of primary and secondary schools and colleges

Primary school pupils will not be asked to test at this time.

The lateral flow tests are for the identification of asymptomatic cases of covid-19.
