A big improvement: students present to teachers their rapid test consent forms which are valid for the whole school year,

Not perfect yet: parents through APEEEL also claimed electronic – through sms as the data protection consent – instead of the current paper form.

The parents through APEEEL succeeded with the claim: signing weekly the rapid test consent to be valid the whole school year.

We summarise here the new procedure emailed by the school on 23/11/2021:

  • Primary and Nursery:
    1. Parents complete this consent form in paper and give to the students
    2. the class teacher will collect the declarations of participation.

In case of withdrawal: parent emails to teacher and teacher will hand back the consent form to the parents for destruction.

  • Secondary:
    1. Complete the form in paper and the student presents it weekly
    2. Students present it to the teacher each week to receive their test kit (1 test at school, 1 test at home). Students keep the declaration with them for the following week.

In case of withdrawal parents/students can destroy the declaration of participation that the student keeps anytime.

Nevertheless, the procedure is not yet satisfactory. APEEEL will keep claiming electronic forms – through sms as the data protection consent – instead of the current paper form.
