Lateral Flow Testing
During the Christmas holidays, the Department of Education announced that they wanted schools to roll out weekly Lateral Flow Testing for all staff and children in Senior Schools and Colleges in England.
The Octagon was set up as a testing centre and we were able to test 75 staff successfully. It was a great relief to know that we had seven staff trained and able to run a testing site safely and successfully and that we had plenty of Lateral Flow tests for the future. Whilst we are in Lockdown, we will be testing all staff on-site weekly and have offered to test any Critical Worker boys we are looking after too. We have all found this process reassuring in the midst of the pandemic. We hope you will too.
