All households with children of school age to get free rapid COVID-19 tests

10 Mar 2021,

Self testing is now extended to whole families and households with primary school, secondary school and college age children, including childcare and support bubbles.

Everyone needs to play their part to keep the virus under control while keeping children and young people in school.

This means that you can test your household and support bubble by collecting lateral flow tests (LFT's) for free from a local test centre if at least one household member or a member of your support bubble:

  • is a school or college pupil
  • works in a school or college (this includes temporary workers or volunteers)

You can collect 2 packs of home test kits at a local collection point, each pack contains 7 tests. Most collection points are open from 1.30pm to 7pm.

NHS Test and Trace has rapidly expanded its network of testing sites and has more than 500 test sites that will provide LFT test kits to eligible individuals as part of community collect.

  • You can find your nearest collection site by visiting Find COVID-19 Rapid Test Sites
  • You can check online if the location is open or busy before you go.
  • You do not need to make an appointment.
  • Do not visit a collection point outside opening hours, as it may be used to test people with coronavirus symptoms outside these times.

If you cannot get to to rapid lateral flow test site you can order LFT kits to to be sent to your home in England. Order LTF kits to your home here.

Find out more about lateral flow tests for households and bubbles of pupils, students and staff of schools and colleges.
