Over the weekend we were informed of 2 separate positive cases of COVID-19 in Year 11. This situation will be very frustrating for all concerned, especially as Year 11 had only just returned. We are following the advice given to us by the relevant agencies and want to have students in school but when we can be sure that it is appropriate and safe to do so.
We are implementing a process to identify the close contacts of these students with the aim of bringing the majority of Year 11 students into school before the end of the period of self-isolation. We want to complete this in a timely manner but need to ensure it is done so that the risk of infection is managed.
Until further notice, Year 11 students will need to self-isolate until Monday 19th October, other members of the household do not need to self-isolate. Should a student develop symptoms then they must get a COVID-19 test and inform the school of the result.
We will share information with you as soon as possible, please monitor our website and social media. Students will continue to access their remote learning in the meantime.
