The pupils are just eight days into their high school lives but have returned to home learning after being told they must self isolate.



Dave Lancaster, Principal, said: “Today we have sent our Year 7 pupils home as there has been a positive test for Covid 19.

“We are now following all the guidance in response to this, as it is right that we do all that we can to minimise the risk to any other of our staff or children.

“A bubble of pupils have now been notified that they need to self-isolate in line with government guidance.

“We will, of course, be providing children with home learning, but we do appreciate the pressures that this may add to our families.

“We will continue to work with Public Health England to ensure that we can get our children back into our school as soon as possible.”
