In a letter to parents and caregivers on Friday 18 September, headteacher Jodie Lumb said: “Today, we have now been advised of a small number of positive Covid-19 cases and following our robust procedures, children and staff from 6PW and 2AH have been asked to stay at home and self-isolate.”
It follows a letter dated Wednesday 16 September where the headteacher shared concerns about parents and caregivers not supporting the new staggered drop off and collection times.
She said: “We are working tirelessly to limit the number of contacts that your children are having in school and have been disappointed to see children from different bubbles and families congregating – even playing together on school grounds. This is very disappointing for our staff and other families.”
