Lateral Flow Testing

On Sunday 28 February, the Department of Health and Social Care announced that from Monday 1 March, households with primary school, secondary school and college age children, including childcare and support bubbles, can test themselves twice every week at home as schools return from Monday 8 March. Households, childcare and support bubbles of primary, secondary and college staff can also be tested. Twice-weekly testing will also be offered to adults working in the wider school community, including bus drivers and after school club leaders.

The twice-weekly test kits can be accessed:
• via employers if they offer testing to employees
• at a local test site
• by collecting a home test kit from a test site
• by ordering a home test kit online

This is a voluntary testing option for households, if you would like to participate, please follow the instructions on the site or arrange your booking at CHOYD using the link below.

Please note that schools are unable to facilitate the ordering of these.

Keeping Children Safe Online
There are several ways to safeguard children. Undoubtedly the most effective way is to educate them from an early age about the risks they may encounter when online, what these risks are, how to spot them and what action to take.

  • Set ground rules about the use of the internet, email and texts. They should learn to take responsibility for their own actions and develop their own judgement.
  • Make children aware that online contacts may not be who they say they are
  • Children should keep personal details private
  • Ensure that they use a family email when filling in online forms
  • They must never meet someone they have only met online without a trusted adult present
  • Get your children to report concerns about conversations, messages and behaviours to you or another trusted adult. Encourage them to share their internet experience with you.
  • Get children to report bullying online, by text or phone immediately to you
  • Use parental control settings on your browser, search engine and internet security package
  • Block pop-ups and spam emails
  • Always sit with younger children when they are online
  • Watch out for any unusual or secretive behaviour from your child when they are using the internet
