Temporary School Closure - 14th May

Please see below for an urgent message from Mr. B Erwin - School Principal regarding a temporary closure from 14th May 2020

Dear students, parents and carers

We are having to temporarily close the school as there has been confirmed case of COVID-19 being reported to us by an adult looking after one of the children currently attending our school during partial opening.

While we believe the risk to other members of the school community to be very low, we are taking this matter seriously.  We have applied the necessary Public Health and DFE guidelines inside school but cannot control the infection from outside into school.

Therefore, we will close the school for the next 72 hours (until Tuesday next week) whilst we deep clean the school.  It will not be possible for children and staff to attend the school until we confirm later on Monday that we are re-opening.  

Student that have been inside school over the last school week from 4 May onwards need to self isolate for seven days from today.

We have been in contact with the NHS and the local authority and they confirm there are no further precautions are required for students/staff who may have been in contact with this child.  

Please remind yourself of the symptoms of COVID-19 and follow NHS guidance if you have concerns about the health of anyone in your family.  These can be found here

I hope you understand this is a necessary but important step to take.

Mr Erwin
