Letter to Parents - 15th September

Dear Parent/Carer,

 

We have been advised by Public Health Wales that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within our school in our Year 10 year group.

 

Following both Welsh Government and Local Authority guidance, as a precautionary measure, some of our pupils who have been identified as close contacts have been asked to self-isolate for a period of 14 days since the last contact with the confirmed case. This is because it can take up to 14 days for the symptoms to develop.

 

The process of testing and contact tracing is part of the new normal where schools and settings are required to follow the guidelines carefully as part of the Test, Trace, Protect strategy that Welsh Government has adopted.

 

The school remains open for all other pupils. Please can I reassure you we will continue to be vigilant in adhering to all guidelines so that we can keep all children and staff safe. The health and safety of everyone in our school community is of paramount importance and we appreciate your full support during these times.

 

We are here to provide support and guidance should you require it.

 

Yours sincerely

S J Evans

Headteacher
