1. We have, this morning, been notified of a positive case of COVID-19 in our Year 10 cohort. A number of our Year 10 students have been identified as having come into close contact with this student. This means that we will need to send a number of our Year 10 pupils home as soon as possible today to self-isolate. All parents/guardians of the affected students will be contacted by the school this morning.
Pupils who have been identified as close contacts will be isolated from the rest of the school community until they can safely be allowed off-site.
2. A Year 7 teaching group was asked to self-isolate yesterday as a consequence of a different positive test result. All of the parents/guardians of the affected students were contacted yesterday. We will be in contact with the parents/guardians of these students later today to confirm the ongoing arrangements.
