MULLION SCHOOL Covid-19 Lateral Flow Testing Consent Form
NHS Test and Trace consent form for COVID-19 testing
This common consent form has been designed for use by parents and carers of students under the age of 16 and students over 16.
For students younger than 16 years - this form must be completed by the parent or legal guardian. Please complete one consent form for each child you wish to enrol for testing.
Students over 16 can complete this form themselves, having discussed participation with their parent/carer if under 18.
We ask that all parents/carers take the time to consider the information contained in the links below about the testing. Should parents/carers have any questions prior to confirming consent please email
In the case of under 16s, we ask that parents discuss the testing with children and ensure they are 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 If on the day of testing they do not wish to take part, then they will not be made to do so and consent can be withdrawn at any time ahead of the test.
If your child's results are negative on the lateral flow test you will not be contacted by the School except where they are a close contact of a confirmed positive.
If the lateral flow test indicates the presence of COVID-19, you will be asked to arrange a nose and throat swab for confirmatory PCR testing for your child, which will need to be processed at an NHS Test & Trace laboratory and update the School on the results of this test. Your child will need to self-isolate following a positive lateral flow test result, until the results of the confirmatory PCR have been received. If your child’s test results are confirmed to be positive from this PCR test, you will need to report this to the School and your child will be required to self-isolate in line with public health advice.
If a close contact of your child tests positive but your child has tested negative, they should continue to attend School but will be tested every day at School for 7 days.
I consent to my child self-administering a nose and throat swab, or being supported to do so, in order to complete a lateral flow test for COVID-19. *
