Dear parents & carers,
As you may be aware there was a confirmed case of Covid-19 at school today. We have followed advice from Public Health and informed the parents or carers where applicable.
Please note that this is likely to have an impact on our plans to offer a wider opening to children in Reception and Year 1. We will confirm details about opening to more children as soon as we are able to.
Please see the Government guidance below:
Coronavirus (COVID-19): implementing protective measures in education and childcare settings
What happens if there is a confirmed case of coronavirus (COVID-19) in a setting?
Where the child, young person or staff member tests positive, the rest of their class or group within their childcare or education setting should be sent home and advised to self-isolate for 14 days. The other household members of that wider class or group do not need to self-isolate unless the child, young person or staff member they live with in that group subsequently develops symptoms.
Additionally, Public Health England have sent us guidance to share with people who may have been in contact with a person who has tested positive:
As I am sure you understand we are unable to answer specific queries regarding this case due to confidentiality.
Ms R Thomas & Leadership Team
