Important message

School Information

(Updated 10 September 2021)

Dear Parents & Carers,

You may be aware that we have had a positive case identified within Y5 at the end of his week (10.09.21). We have informed the parents in the year group concerned and the local authority as well as the school’s governing board. The current operational guidance issued by the government does not require us to take any further action and so we will continue to monitor the situation. Children in the affected year group should continue to come to school unless they are displaying symptoms.  Many schools in the area have now had cases and it seems that with the number of cases rising nationally we are likely to see an increase ourselves over the coming months.

If your child displays any symptoms please arrange for a test as soon as possible. Information and advice can be found at: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/coronavirus-in-children/

We are continuing to ensure increased ventilation around the school, as well as regular hand washing and cleaning of tables and equipment.
