Testing is now available for everyone returning to school.

He said in a letter to constituents yesterday that there will be regular Coronavirus testing for school communities.

All households with somebody regularly attending school, including staff and pupils of all ages will have access to regular asymptomatic testing.

Martin 'urged' families to take advantage of this when they can.

He said: "The more cases we can pick up, the easier it will be to stop any potential outbreaks in their tracks and ultimately, this will help us keep more pupils in the classroom and infection rates down.

"These households can test regularly by either visiting a site in person or collecting some test kits to do at home.

"If it’s hard to travel to a test site then you can get test kits sent to your home.

"To find out more, including locations of test sites, check the information on the Government’s website."

However, please note that the rapid test sites in Aylesbury have changed their opening hours.
