After seeking advice from Public Health England and the Local Health Protection Team, we regret to inform parents and carers that the Year 5 and Year 10 bubbles will close from the end of the school day on Friday 11th September 2020. We are taking this swift action following one confirmed positive case of COVID-19 in each of these year groups.
Pupils in Year 5 and Year 10 must now self-isolate for 14 days and resume remote learning, returning to school on the 28th September 2020. It is the choice of the parent/carer whether to take their Year 5 or 10 child for a COVID-19 test if they are not showing symptoms. However, if they are showing symptoms, they must be tested and you must notify the school of the outcome of the test as soon as possible.
If you do have a child in Year 5 or Year 10, and a sibling in a different year group, the sibling must still attend school as normal, unless they develop symptoms of COVID-19. As a reminder to all parents/carers, if your child or anyone in your household develops symptoms of COVID-19, your child must not come into school and must get a COVID-19 test at the earliest opportunity.
Please notify the school of the outcome of the test as soon as possible.
