COVID-19 testing 

Students and staff will NOT be required to self test over the summer holidays. Student and staff testing will resume from September.

Testing kits will be widely available for everyone over the summer and can be ordered online or collected from a local pharmacy. Results during this period do not need to be reported to the school. 

Why take part in testing

Asymptomatic testing helps to identify positive cases more quickly and break the chains of transmission. Taking part in testing is voluntary and all students will be able to attend Sewell Park whether they take part in testing or not.

We strongly encourage all students to take part. Regular testing will allow students to attend school as safely as possible and ensure our wider community remains safer. The community has demonstrated a fantastic ability to support each other throughout the pandemic and we are confident this will continue into the next phase.
