Tower Hamlets COVID Testing

You may be aware that Tower Hamlets have requested that all residents, students, and those working in
Tower Hamlets are asked to take a PCR test for COVID-19. This is due to the low testing rates in the borough. To that end, the borough have asked all schools to contact parents / carers to ask them to have their children aged 11 and over, and all family members tested.

Testing sites where you can be tested or collect home test kits are listed below. With restrictions being lifted across England from today, it is important that we all support this measure to further protect ourselves and others. Thank you for your continued support with COVID-19 measures.

DfE Updated Guidance on Face Masks / Coverings

 

Please Remember to Continue to Test

 

 

 

All CFGS students must continue to do their Lateral Flow Tests (LFT).

Remember students must self isolate if their test is positive, and you must contact us to notify us of this as soon as possible. Thanks for continuing to support the health and safety of us all. 

How to do a Lateral Flow Test (LFT)

Updated Procedures (April 2021)

Every member of the CFGS community has a responsibility to keep themselves and others safe by following Government Guidelines for coronavirus. 

Those with symptoms

  • Anyone with symptoms (even if they recently had a negative LFD test result), should still self-isolate immediately. Those with symptoms must take a PCR test to check if they have the virus.
  • If the result of the PCR test is positive, the school must be informed immediately so that close contacts can be traced.  The student, their household and all close contacts must isolate for the required ten days.  School work will be provided to be completed at home.

Those who test positive on a Lateral Flow Test

  • If a student receives a positive result on a Lateral Flow Test, they should isolate immediately along with their household members and close contacts, in line with NHS Test and Trace guidance.  Parents/Carers must inform the school and book the student in for a PCR Test.
  • Normal track and tracing is started in school as soon as a LFT positive result is shared and any close contacts will be sent home to self-isolate.
  • If the original student’s PCR test comes back as positive, then the student, their household and all close contacts must isolate for the required ten days (even if any subsequent PCR tests come back as negative from close contacts or household members).  School work will be provided to be completed at home.
  • If the original student’s PCR test comes back as negative, then it overrides the lateral flow test and pupils, students and staff can return to school or college, and close contacts and other household members can stop self-isolating.

Read the most recent guidance

If you are in doubt, you can phone your GP or 111 to get professional medical advice. 

We recognise that self-isolating is not easy and that it is done to protect others.   We thank you in advance for your understanding and support.
