Secondary Phase Covid-19 Update

Monday 16th November 2020

Dear parents and carers,

Over the weekend and today we have been made aware of a number of positive Covid-19 cases within our school community. Those testing positive include staff and students. We have over a third of our teaching staff now in isolation which means that we have had to make the very difficult decision to close the Secondary Phase to some students. With effect from Tuesday 17th November (tomorrow) until Friday 27th November inclusive, the Secondary Phase will be open to Years 7 and 10 only. Students in Years 7 and 10 who have already been advised to isolate should remain at home until the safe date previously communicated is reached. All students will return to school on Monday 30th November. There will be some spaces made available for children in all years for those considered vulnerable or whose parents are frontline emergency service workers, education or healthcare professionals and need support with childcare provision. Further details, including access to online learning provision,  will follow in a letter to be distributed by email today.

Thank you for continuing support.

Yours sincerely,
Steve Carey
Executive Headteacher
Saint George’s C of E School
