I have now received notification of a fourth positive test in Year 10 very late last night. As this is four cases within one week and there are possible links which suggest transmission may have occurred in school rather than in the wider community I have decided to close the Year 10 Bubble.
Therefore please do not send your child to school this morning. Today- learning will be via Google classroom but we will endeavour to begin live lessons as soon as possible.
I will confirm the length of the closure to Year 10 later when I have spoken to the Local Health Protection Team.
This has not been an easy decision to reach. I do feel this is the best course of action and I have made the decision in the best interests of everyone’s safety.
Once again thank you for your support and understanding at this current time.
