UPDATE: We have had 5 confirmed Covid-19 cases reported to us of Monday 23rd November: two in Year 7, one in Year 8, one in Year 9 and one in Year 11.
We have had a confirmed Year 8 Covid case in school as of Monday 16th November. All close contacts have been informed directly through school comms and should have received an email / letter by 5pm. If you have not been contacted directly, your child has not been identified as a close contact and can attend school as normal tomorrow (Tuesday 17th).
We have had a positive Covid case confirmed to us today in Year 8. This has affected just under 30 Year 8 students who have been identified as close contacts. To clarify - the whole Year 8 year group has NOT been asked to self-isolate, just those students identified through seating plans and teacher/student information as close contacts. If your child has been identified as a close contact, we will have called you directly to confirm this. Formal letters confirming arrangements will be sent out tomorrow.
