Confirmed cases of coronavirus in school - Reception, Year 3 and Year 6
We have been advised by parents and Public Health England of confirmed cases of COVID-19 within Reception, year 3 and year 6. Three pupils from one family have tested positive. Classes affected are:
- Reception, Class RF - Mrs Watts
- Reception, a phonics group (parents contacted by email)
- Year 3, Class 3P - Miss Whaley
- Year 6, Class 6S - Miss Stabler
Children in these classes need to stay at home and self-isolate. The last day of self-isolation is Friday 2nd July. Pupils may return to school on Monday 5 July. We will switch to remote learning by Microsoft Teams from Monday 28 June for these classes. This means these pupils should not leave the house for any reason, including walking to school with any other siblings.
Pupils in Class 6S will not be able to travel to the Isle of Wight on Friday for their residential trip. We are very disappointed that these pupils cannot travel. We will contact parents and talk to pupils separately.
Three class teachers and four other adults who work in these classes must also self-isolate at home. There are no other known close contacts of these pupils, including after-school clubs or play dates.
All other pupils in Reception, year 3 and year 6 are not affected because we have continued to operate our class containment bubbles. School remains open to these and all other pupils.
If your child has any symptoms, including mild ones please arrange a PCR test.
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.
