Year 9 positive Covid case 12.05.21

We have had to ask around 35 students in Year 9 to self-isolate from this morning (13.05.21) for 10 days in relation to a positive lateral flow test/close contact in that year group. This only affects Year 9. We are waiting for confirmation from the PCR test before issuing formal letters.

There is no further action for any other students beyond the usual measures: twice weekly lateral flow tests to be taken at home, face masks to be worn and hands washed and sanitised regularly.

Please continue to use the lateral flow tests as they are picking up asymptomatic cases where there are no symptoms - as in this case. If your child has symptoms or is unwell, please do not send them to school. If your child has symptoms they must take a PCR test.
