After a month with no positive cases of Covid-19 in the school community, we had a small number of cases in school last week. These have affected the Year 9, 11 and Sixth Form bubbles, with a small number of students in Year 7 and 10 also having to isolate. An update letter will follow for Year 11 parents/carers later today, after we have spoken with Public Health. Whilst some of the individuals that have tested positive for the virus have had minor symptoms in school, none displayed the three main symptoms of coronavirus initially and some have been asymptomatic. All the safety measures we have in place help to reduce the transmission of the disease and we act quickly when cases arise, following government guidance and public health advice. It is important that we continue to be vigilant this week as Christmas approaches.
