As you will be aware from media reports we continue to see a rise in cases within schools. Since I last wrote to you we have had a further 12 cases across the school in all three year groups.
In addition we have seen a significant rise in the numbers of both staff and students being asked to self isolate as a result of contacts with positive cases outside of school. There has also been a rise in the numbers of staff with children who have been sent home from school to self isolate.
I continue to ask that all students take twice weekly lateral flow tests as requested. In addition can I ask that you remind your child to continue to wear face coverings on both public and school transport as requested as well as on corridors and in communal spaces in school.
