Ordering and delivery of home testing kits to PVI nurseries

The process for how private, voluntary and independent (PVI) nurseries order test kits is changing from Thursday 29 April. We are introducing a new online system for ordering test kits for testing at home. This means that you will be able to re-order test kits and better manage stock levels and deliveries to your nursery.

PVI nurseries will automatically receive a delivery of testing kits on Thursday 6 May, Friday 7 May or Monday 10 May. This delivery will be the final automatic delivery and should provide you with sufficient testing kits to last until the end of May. After this you will need to use the new ordering system to order further test kits.

You will receive a welcome email in the next few days containing your Unique Organisation Number (UON). You can also find your UON using the unique organisation number lookup form. Your UON will enable you to place orders for test kits using the new online ordering system.

Please consider your current stock level and your testing demands before placing any order to ensure that the order you place meets your testing needs. You can order your testing kit supplies using the order coronavirus (COVID-19) tests for your organisation online form. For further information on how to place an order, please refer to the ordering guidance available on the primary schools and nurseries document sharing platform.
