Reduced school opening due to self-isolation

Reduced school opening due to self-isolation

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am so very sorry to be writing this update for you. On Saturday 27/02/21 I was informed that one member of staff tested positive for Covid 19 using a lateral flow test. They then went and had a PCR test, which also showed a positive result. This individual case has affected our Y1 class, but no others.

I have worked with Public Health England to identify those staff and students who have had close contact with these members of our community.

If your child was at school in the Y1 class on Thursday 25/02/21 or Friday 26/02/21, they must stay at home for 10 days and can return to school on Tuesday 09/03/21.

This is now our second positive result in the school in the last two days (the Y2 bubble was sent home on Friday 26/02/21) so if our provision for your child needs to be adjusted then we will communicate with you separately on Monday 01/03/21.

I am aware that any changes to our provision may be frustrating for you with regards to childcare arrangements and attendance at work but I am sure you will agree, this is a serious matter and it is essential that our school only provides face to face lessons when it is safe to do so.

What happens next?

We will be writing to parents/carers of children, who are unable to attend, with home learning information. 

I will update you of any further developments as soon as possible. I am currently in liaison with the Local Authority, their health and safety team, the Director for Children Services and the Director for Public Health as well as Public Health England. I can reassure you that the school has adhered to all safety guidance and is compliant with Gov.Uk recommendations for being open during the pandemic. Thank you for your understanding in this very difficult time.
