COVID cases update

Dear parents and carers
I am writing to keep you updated with our recent situation with Covid. Our numbers of positive cases in both staff and students are starting to rise again.

As a school, since the national reduction of restrictions during February, we have continued to be vigilant and maintain group distancing, hand washing / hand gel procedures. In order to try to keep the rising number of cases to a minimum, we ask you to please keep your child at home and get PCR tested if they display any of the key Covid symptoms. If your child is unwell, in any way, we also recommend they remain at home until they feel better.

We will be sending home today with KS3, 4 and 5 students a 7 test box of lateral flow tests for you to continue to test your young person at home twice a week.

We will keep you informed, should we see any significant rise in cases throughout the school.

Kind regards
Tracy Felstead
