Unfortunately, we have been notified of a second positive case of COVID-19 in Year 10. This case is not connected to an earlier case that was reported today in Year 10. As a number of students and staff have been identified as close-proximity contacts, we are now in a position where we need to collapse the Year 10 bubble.
Following advice from Public Health England health protection team, all Year 10 students will be required to self-isolate and work from home for the rest of this term. All Year 10 students must now stay at home and self-isolate until 16 July 2021 as required by the Public Health, England, The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Self-Isolation) (England) Regulations 2020. We are asking you to do this to reduce the further spread of COVID-19 to others in the community.
Students should follow their normal timetable as most lessons will be delivered live on MS Teams. If your child does not have access to the necessary technology to access lessons, please contact the school at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will attempt to arrange this for you.
This requirement means not leaving home for a holiday for the full 10 days.
