Unfortunately we have had a number of confirmed positive cases of Covid 19 in school,. This has meant that year group bubbles have needed to stay at home and isolate. Online learning is in place for those pupils who have to isolate.
Y1,Y2 and Y5 are isolating , returning on TUESDAY 6th JULY
Y4 are isolating , returning on MONDAY 12th JULY
Nursery (Puffins and Penguins) are isolating until further notice. Hopefully we can update parents in the next day or two with confirmed isolation dates.
I appreciate how frustrating this must be for all concerned. We are not alone in having positive cases, the numbers are rising across the country and in the north east in particular and other schools in County Durham are also dealing with this situation. We are pleased that we haven’t had more disruption before now , as many schools have not been so lucky . This doesn’t make it any better, I know.
Government have promised a change to the Covid 19 operational guidance for schools from September, but as yet this hasn’t been confirmed or shared. As soon as we know more we will advise everyone but until then we all have to follow the guidance we have around Covid 19, even if this means further disruption for families, pupils and staff.
