After consultation with Public Health England we have contacted a number of students that need to self-isolate following the positive case in the Sixth Form.
The Sixth form will re-open to all other students from Tuesday 13th October 2020.
Please note that once your child has been asked to remain at home or you have decided to keep your child at home due to COVID symptoms, then they must remain at home until either:
• The 10 day period of isolation is over or
• The School receives notice of a negative test result.
Until this time, it is also required that any other household members remain at home for a period of 14 days.
This is clearly a necessary inconvenience. The School is running any potential cases of COVID through a series of ‘triage’ questions before deciding to send a child home. All teachers have been asked to provide suitable, relevant work for isolated students on our SatchelOne (ShowMyHomework) website. All students have been reminded of this system.
Please do not send your child in to School if they have been isolated at home and the above conditions are not met as this compromises our strict guidelines and the government policy on how to handle cases.
The School is trying to minimise the flow of visitors into School, so you may be asked to have a telephone consultation instead of a face-to-face meeting. However, in some cases a meeting is unavoidable. If you are coming into School, please ensure that you wear a mask whilst in the building.
