Unfortunately, we have been notified of a second positive case of COVID-19 in Year 9. This case is not connected to an earlier case in Year 9 that was reported earlier in the week. As a number of students and staff have been identified as close-proximity contacts and an increasing number of staff are self-isolating, we are now in a position where we need to collapse the Year 9 bubble for all students and move learning online for the rest of this term.

Following advice from Public Health England health protection team, all Year 9 students will be required to self-isolate and work from home for the rest of this term. Your child must now stay at home and self-isolate until 17 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.

As learning will move online, students in Year 9 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 office@bewdley.worcs.sch.uk and we will attempt to arrange this for you.

This requirement means not leaving home for a holiday for the full 10 days.
