To All Parents/Carers Year 8
Re: Covid 19 – Year 8 Pupils only
Due to the high number of positive cases within the Year 8 year group I have consulted the Local Authority, Public Health England and the Governing Body.
The decision has been made to close the Year 8 Bubble from tomorrow, Tuesday 13th July so that a thorough deep clean can be carried out of their allocated area. This will hopefully end the outbreak therefore safeguarding pupils, staff and parents.
Unfortunately this will mean that no year 8 pupils should return to school before the end of term. Pupils will access their work for the rest of the term at their normal lesson times via SMHW and/or Microsoft Teams. Form Time will be conducted through Teams. All pupils should log on at 8.40 am.
This decision has not been made lightly but the health and safety of our pupils and staff is of paramount importance.
I trust you understand my decision and thank you once again for your continued support throughout this difficult time.
