Covid testing upon return to school

Students will receive a covid test in school upon their return, then two further tests, with 3-5 days in between. These tests are only for students that are asymptomatic (currently showing no symptoms of covid). If your child is showing symptoms, you must contact the NHS test and trace service to book a covid test at a local testing centre immediately. The link to book these tests is here.
After the third test, students will be given two covid tests per week, to be completed at home with parental supervision. The result of the test must be reported to both the school and NHS, via the instructions on the test.
Testing is voluntary but highly recommended, the more students that take part, the more effective the testing programme will be. The google form for consent has now closed, but if you still wish to give consent for your child to take part, please email office@qmschool.org.uk.
