The Department for Education has confirmed that

 “All positive results from rapid tests undertaken at home do need to be confirmed with a standard PCR test. This is because these tests are not conducted in a controlled environment and will not have trained staff on hand. Following a positive LFD test at home, a confirmatory PCR test should be booked online or by calling 119. 

Whilst awaiting the PCR result, the pupil or student and their close contacts should self-isolate

If the PCR test is negative, it overrides the self-test LFD test (at home only) and a child can return to school.” 

A prayer for this time 

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
Amen.
