Why are primary children not being tested at school or at home?

Public Health England have advised there are currently limited public health benefits attached to testing primary pupils with lateral flow devices. Primary age pupils, particularly younger children, may find the LFD testing process unpleasant and are unable to self-swab. For these reasons there are no plans to pilot LFD testing. We will review this approach in the light of any emerging evidence.
