If you have ticked "yes" to consent being given, the following applies:

  • I have had the opportunity to consider the information provided by the college about the testing, ask questions and have had these answered satisfactorily, based on the information presented.
  • I have discussed the testing with my child and my child is happy to participate. If on the day of testing they do not wish to take part, then they will not be made to do so and consent can be withdrawn at any time ahead of the test.
  • I consent to my child having a nose and throat swab for a lateral flow test.
  • I consent that my child’s sample(s) will be tested for the presence of COVID-19.
  • I understand that if my child’s result(s) are negative on the lateral flow test I will not be contacted by the school/college except where they/you are a close contact of a confirmed positive.
  • If the lateral flow test indicates the presence of COVID-19, I consent to my child having a nose and throat swab for confirmatory PCR testing, which shall be sent the same day to an NHS Test & Trace laboratory.
  • I consent that my child will need to self-isolate following a positive lateral flow test result, until the results of the confirmatory PCR have been received.
  • I agree that if my child’s test results are confirmed to be positive from this PCR test, I will report this to the college and I understand that my child will be required to self-isolate following public health advice.
  • I consent that if a close contact of my child tests positive but my child has tested negative, they will continue to attend college but will be tested every day at college for 7 days.

Please do not hesitate to contact if you have any questions.
