Confirmed COVID-19 case in our school community

We have been made aware today that a member of our school community has tested positive for COVID-19. This incidence is completely unrelated to any of the previous positive cases that I have notified you about.

I appreciate that you may find this concerning but please be assured that we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with our local Health Protection teams in Public Health England. This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

The small number of people who have been in close contact with the individual who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) have received a letter informing them that they must stay home for 14 days.

The school remains open and your child should continue to attend as normal after half term if they remain well.

For more information as what to do you if you or your child develop symptoms, please see our previous post here.
