Yesterday we were informed of another Year 11 student who had tested positive for Covid-19 over the weekend. Working with PHE, the student and teachers, we identified 20 Year 11 who would be deemed to be close contacts of the student. In line with the guidance these have all been asked to self-isolate for a period of 14 days and to get a test only if they develop symptoms.
Today we have been informed that a Year 9 student has tested positive for Covid-19. Again, we have carried out the task of identifying close contacts of the student who was last in school on Friday 25th September. A further 20 students have been sent home to isolate for a period of 14 days as a result of this.
I will keep you informed of all developments as and when they occur.
