During these difficult times we have shared with students our expectations of behaviour in relation to normal classroom practice and also our specific ‘covid rules’ to keep students safe. The majority of students have impressed us with their willingness to help the Trinity family and their appreciation for how hard their teachers are working in this ‘new normal’ to keep them safe. We have learned from the small number of cases of Covid-19 within the school community that, when students follow the covid rules, we are able to send home much smaller numbers of students to isolate. When we are unable to say with a degree of certainty that students have kept within their friendship groups, this leads to the track and trace process taking longer as we look through CCTV footage to be sure that we have all contacts. Public Health have told us that we must be 100% confident that we have traced every contact to avoid a larger number of students staying at home. They assess the risk with us asking questions about symptoms and touch, as well as close contacts.
