Lateral Flow Testing

Lateral Flow Testing

We have now completed the Lateral Flow tests in school for all pupils for whom we received consent. These pupils will be provided with Home Testing Kits at designated periods during the term.

If your child did not access In-school Lateral Flow Test, you can order test kits here

We encourage all students who are taking part in lateral flow testing to watch. 

We recommend that you carry out your tests on a Sunday evening and Wednesday evening. This is to ensure that you are taking your tests at the required 3-5 day intervals.

Students should report all results to the NHS. However, you only need to report your result to Reddish Vale High School if your result is positive.

Report result to NHS Test and Trace here
Report a positive result to Reddish Vale High School by emailing us at: 

It is extremely important for you to report your test result to the NHS, even if it is negative. Please find information on this topic and how to report test results here
