Ah ok thanks, that makes sense. I’m sure someone earlier had confirmed they were fine aslong as you registered and got the text? But it’s just proving to be very confusing! 

Royal have told me that it’s fine to use one of the lateral flow tests from school as long as you can report the results and get confirmation back (eg it must have a barcode that is reported)

Just checked the DAM Health website and they also offer the lateral flow test in Liverpool for £59. 
PCR tests are also now available at DAM clinics in Manchester, Leeds, Wolverhampton and possibly London (may not yet be open).

I thought one of the concerns was reading the result yourself from the test kit? Is that how the lateral flow test kits given to staff work? 

I really hope they accept all the different variants of the test, and supply their own if people need them and hope all the children stay healthy and symptoms free. 

That’s what I originally thought but then someone said they had spoke to them and they were accepting these ones aslong as they were registered online. Are these not the same tests they do in school anyway? What’s the difference if a school does it do they register it instead? I’m wondering if I could take the test I’ve been given by a friend into school to be done if that’s the case

Just found out  Dumlers Pharmacy in Richmond  offers rapid antigen tests and they are 69 pounds.   

The stress of sourcing a test has at least distracted me from the the stress of ds attending an audition class at such a prestigious school.

I think people had confirmed it is fine, when I called they also said to try to source it from a secondary school (though I thought the test would be administered  by staff.) 

My concern would just be people self-reporting results and self-interpreting the test results.

I though we were ok with the ones you can do at home (ones from healthcare workers)someone had said earlier in the chat? aslong as they have a barcode and can be registered? Or has their been a development I’ve missed? If so I’m back to square one 

Hi lovely. I had a response from royal ballet by email saying you couldn't do a home test...maybe email them and ask if yours is OK. I sent them a link for an mhra approved one and the bupa one but they told me I would have to book an appointment somewhere x

Thanks so much, I’m back at square one again but at least I’ve still plenty of time to sort

That’s not what I was told! They were quite happy with a self administered school test as long as the results were reported! As far as I am aware, most lateral flow tests are self administered even if you book to have it done somewhere - it’s only the antigen and pcr tests that are carried out by a healthcare worker/professional?

that’s what I had read also, I really hope they do send us an email with clear confirmation of exactly what they require. So when you self administer with a school test who reports is it the school or yourself?

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 ....!

We do it ourself - obviously it relies on honesty!

so the fact that they’ve suggested the school does it must mean they are happy with this sort of test? The test that has been given to me is from a healthcare worker so has a barcode on it. But as mentioned above they’ve also said home tests are not accepted so it’s like they aren’t sure completely themselves.  As I say I hope they do clarify over the next few days

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 🙂

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.

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!

Yes thanks for saying that, I need to check that we’ll get a certificate from the free testing site. I will call them today x

Very rarely post on here but thought I let you know there are maximum of 7 girls in each audition class 

Thank you! I wonder if that means it’s 7 in total for a half day session or whether it just means 7 go into the studio to dance 🤔

I asked rbs I post their reply now just give me a minute to work out how I do it 🤣

can say, however, that we are aiming for no more than 7 students per class, with a maximum of 14 students in the building at any one time. There will be thorough cleaning undertaken in between groups and all staff will be tested, as we have asked all participants to be.

Hmm so do we think that means there’s 14 in each of the half day sessions and they go in in 2 groups, or just 7, and the 14 is the crossover of groups? Am I overthinking? 🤣 if there was only 7 per half day that’s considerably less than expected, but then the over seas candidates are coming separately arnt they.  X

I would guess it means 7 dancing, 7 physio check then swap. Then leave and then next 14 in xxx
