Confirmed case of COVID-19 in Nursery Dragonflies
We have been advised by Public Health England of a confirmed case of COVID-19 within our Nursery Dragonflies class bubble. A member of staff has tested positive. We wish her well.
Children in our Nursery Ladybirds class bubble, led by Mr McEvoy, are not affected because our Nursery is split into 2 separate containment bubbles. Nursery remains open to all children in Ladybirds.
Nursery also remains open to Dragonfly pupils who were not in Nursery on Thursday or Friday.
Children in Dragonflies class bubble who attended Nursery on Thursday or Friday need to stay at home. They can return to Nursery on Tuesday 9 February.
We will switch to remote learning at home for children who have been asked to self-isolate.
Close contacts have been identified and contacted by email today. This includes:
- children who attended Nursery Dragonflies on Thursday and Friday
- staff members who were in close contact.
We are able to remain open for the rest of Dragonfly pupils as our staff now test twice weekly, this reduces the number of staff who need to self-isolate.
We know that you may find this worrying but we are continuing to monitor the situation. We are working with Public Health England, following their requirements for schools and have informed the local authority.
