We now have in place a Covid-19 testing site within the Academy and are able to offer Lateral Flow Tests to students and staff who are asymptomatic.
We will be testing students, whose parents have registered and provided consent, who are attending the academy on site on Monday 18 January and Thursday 21 January.
Please read our Testing Privacy Statement Testing Data Protection FAQ. A step by step guide to Covid-19 Testing at Outwood Academy Normanby has also been produced to provide information and support to students before they take the test.
If you have not already done so and are happy for your child to be tested, please complete an online Registration Form/Consent Form using a phone, tablet, laptop or PC. Just follow this link: https://forms.gle/2BhVuqFQDhdYtDjp6
Those taking the test will be supervised by trained staff. Students will need to register their test on the Test and Trace website before they take their test in school. For students who have mobile phones, we will allow them to do this on their phone with support from staff. If students do not have their phone in school, we will provide an ipad to register the test. The lateral flow tests are quick and easy using a swab of your nose and throat. For under-18s, staff can oversee the swab process.
If a student tests positive for Covid-19, parents will be informed immediately and a member of staff will support the student in leaving site with advice on self-isolation periods.
