  1. Sorry, I was replying to an earlier message that you had replied to and quoting the original poster not you!
  2. You are making very big assumptions and speculating and generalising un-necessarily here - I can’t even begin to work out how you can say that all those children are “seasoned performance professionals” - honestly? And so what if they are? I am beyond baffled. How about we simply say well done to the children and wish them good luck at whatever school they may be attending, vocational or otherwise. That old mantra - be kind.
  3. Absolutely this! Being honest with your children, talking openly about options regularly and ensuring your child knows that they can jump off the train if it’s not for them , has to be the way to do this!
  4. I do think it’s important to remember that this last year has been really different aswell. Dance schools offered varying levels of classes through zoom during the Lockdowns (some had a super limited timetable, or offered nothing, some offered a full timetable etc), so naturally people may have looked elsewhere ... and there was lots available! Anyone with access to social media could find free ballet classes or teachers offering new online classes for all age ranges. And it’s also important to consider that just because multiple schools are posting the success of these children, doesn’t necessarily mean the children are “still” doing classes with them .... maybe it’s an opportunity for that teacher/dance school to celebrate that they’ve had some part in that child’s training at some point over the last couple of years or so?? Maybe this is naive of me, but I am super wary of social media!!
  5. Not sure if you’ve seen the latest email but they will accept a home test as long as you can report the results either via the government website or test and trace app 🙂
  6. You enter the results in test and trace when you go to an NHS testing centre (so if you have symptoms). All the work based lateral flow tests are entered through the government website but you still get a result from the NHS which is the evidence that Royal want to see.
  7. It will tell you where to report the result in the instructions
  8. Just so everyone knows, the school tests can’t be registered on the Test and Trace app as the barcode has to be reported to the government website rather than the app but you do then get a follow up result email from the NHS, which I have just confirmed with Royal is acceptable! I just wanted to clarify with them that there didn’t have to be evidence in our Test and Trace apps! Thought I’d let everyone know so nobody panics when you don’t get a code to input into the Test and trace app!
  9. Just make sure that the results are officially reported and you get a certificate. I have phoned a few places local to me that offer rapid Antigen testing but they just tell you the result rather than getting an official report confirming it!
  10. You will report the results of that test to the NHS (using the barcode) and get an official email and text confirming the test result, the name and DOB of the person taking the test.
  11. Thanks for sharing. The school tests (even though done at home) do provide an official result email from the NHS so they should be fine to use 🙂
  12. All the lateral flow tests that are being used by teaching staff and healthcare workers are self administered and self reported to the NHS. Even the secondary school children will be self administering their own tests at home once they have been shown how to do it over the first few weeks back at school ....!
