Rapid Testing In School

Staff and Pupils on site at Parkside Community School who consent to do so can now take regular tests for COVID-19. This government programme is designed to help manage the spread of the virus by identifying positive cases in people who do not have symptoms, thus reducing the spread of the disease via asymptomatic contacts.

In order for pupils to be tested in schools, we must first have consent to do so. For children aged under 16, consent must be given by a parent or carer. Children aged 16 or over without SEND may give consent themselves.
