The Government announced on Friday 26th that families and households with primary school-age children, including childcare and support bubbles, will be able to test themselves twice every week from home as schools return from 8 March.


To help stop the spread of coronavirus and minimise disruption to education, we encourage all families to participate in this testing.


You can get tested in four ways:

  1. workplace testing
  2. visit a community testing site

  1. organise for home kits to be delivered to your home

Order rapid lateral flow home test kits

  1. collect home testing kits from your nearest testing site

What will I be asked to do if I take the Lateral Flow Test:

  • take a test twice a week (every 3 or 4 days apart)
  • report every result to NHS Test and Trace on the same day you take the test

Report your test result online or by calling 119.

If anyone tests positive or gets coronavirus symptoms, they should tell the school and:

A negative result means the test did not find signs of coronavirus. But this does not guarantee you do not have coronavirus, so you should keep following all coronavirus advice, including:

  • regular handwashing
  • social distancing
  • wearing a face-covering where recommended

Below you will find a letter from Ealing Council about school return and the role out of LFT community testing.
