-Once you have completed your test, please leave site promptly to allow the smooth flow of students through the test centre.
Please don't arrive early for your slot - this will minimise your waiting time!

-If consent for the testing programme was submitted after the deadline, please come to school at 2pm on your designated day (those families affected will have been emailed by Mr Shillitoe informing them of this arrangement).

-You will receive notification of your result via text/email after around 30mins. Please note: last week the Government site dealing with handling the notifications struggled on occasion, so messages may be delayed.

-If you receive a positive test result, a member of staff will contact you to discuss the next steps.

-Guidance published this weekend has recommended that students do not eat or drink 30mins before the test, as this may affect the result.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school directly if you have any questions about the tests next week.
