COVID-19 Testing (Pupils)
The Scottish Government is working with local authorities, schools and other key partners to put in place a testing programme for people without the symptoms of coronavirus as part of the package of coronavirus risk reduction mitigations in education settings.
Its aim is to contribute to the reduction of coronavirus-related risks in schools and, in so doing, to enhance the confidence of our school communities.
It will do this by helping to identify asymptomatic individuals in school environments at the earliest possible opportunity and asking them and their close contacts to self-isolate, thus minimising the likelihood of them passing on the virus.
Taking part in testing is voluntary. There is no expectation or obligation to participate. Nobody should be required to undergo testing without consent and nobody should be excluded from school if they do not wish to take part.
Pupils who are 16 years or over who are able to provide informed consent can complete this form themselves, having discussed it with their parent / carer. For pupils who are under 16, this form must be completed by the parent / carer.

Pupils should read the following documents prior to giving consent;
