Primary School Closure -14/12/2020
Dear Parents and Carers of students in the Primary School,
I am writing to inform you that a member of staff has tested positive for the Coronavirus this weekend. As a result, I have taken the decision to close the primary school for the remainder of the current term. The local authority task force has been informed and has approved this decision. However, we are keenly aware that there may now be more staff and students who may test positive moving forward. I would be grateful if you could let us know during the Christmas break if your child develops symptoms, becomes unwell, and receives a positive test during the upcoming holiday.
If we do receive any further positive tests, I will let you know and I will inform you of the next steps, which may involve more year groups in school self-isolating for a short period after the Christmas holiday. I will keep you informed of any developments as they arise.
I am very sorry to have to write to you just before the end of term and am particularly disappointed that the children will be unable to enjoy the festivities we had planned for them. I am hoping that we have isolated the virus, at least for the moment, and that we can re-open the Primary School as usual after the Christmas break.
Please take care over the coming weeks to keep your families safe.
