Testing at Home

Reporting results 

Step one: It is important that results of each test are reported online straight away, even if your child’s result is negative or void. It’s easy to do at www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result.  

Results can also be reported via telephone by calling 119 (free from mobiles and landlines). Lines are open every day, 7am to 11pm if you prefer. 

Step Two: It is important to keep a note of your child’s results and share with school or college as well. Please do this by visiting our school website and clicking to log a home test result. You can also scan this QR code to access the link you need. (Do this for all results: Positive/Negative/Void).

How to use your tests  

Inside your envelope you will find 3 boxes of test kits. (9 tests total) and a separate instruction booklet. Please keep the booklet safe for use in future tests. Inside each test box will be a separate set of instructions, please discard these as they are an outdated version. 

The instructions take you through a step by step process however we do also have a tutorial video available should you wish to view this here.

Testing for parents, households and bubbles twice a week 

A reminder that regular rapid testing is now also available for parents, their households and support or childcare bubbles. The government is encouraging all families to participate in twice weekly testing to help stop the spread. 

Parents and other adults in the household can access tests by: 

  • Attending a test site to get tested (where you will be able to see how to take the test) or pick up tests to do at home. 

Please do not use the kits provided for school on another member of your bubble, these kits are linked to your child in the academy.

If you have any questions at all, please email enquiries@salfordcity-academy.org and a member of our Covid-19 team will contact you. 

We continue to encourage everyone to take part in regular Covid-19 testing.
