4539 lateral flow tests have now been taken across our Covid-19 test centres

After transforming our Cranworth Road sports hall into a Covid-19 test centre, we started lateral flow testing to reduce the spread of infection for staff and students still working in our schools.

Between Thursday 7th January and today (12th February), the number of tests taken across our two centres – Cranworth Road and The Gainsborough Academy – has now reached 4539, equating to around 900 per week.

We will be continuing the lateral flow testing after half term, with staff and students having allocated days and times for their tests. 

Any positive results will be communicated to the staff or parent of the student half an hour after the test. Those who test positive will be told to isolate in line with guidance from the official Test and Trace app.
