Dear Parents and Guardians,
I wish to inform you that a member of our school community tested positive for Covid-19.
I have sought the most up-to-date advice from The Public Health Agency (PHA) and a full Risk Assessment was carried out by telephone. They have advised that due to the timescales involved, and our action to close the affected area yesterday, as per Education Authority advice, we are safe to reopen the classroom.
Any pupils or staff who were affected were notified and advised separately, based on advice from the Education Authority and PHA.
I fully appreciate and understand the concerns of parents, pupils and the wider school community and wish to reassure you that every precaution has been taken.
Ensuring the safety of our pupils and staff is our absolute priority and we will continue to monitor the situation carefully, and keep you informed of any changes as they arise.
May I take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support during difficult times for us all.
I would ask you to please adhere to social distancing guidance when within the playground and pathways, at those busier times when you are arriving into, or exiting the school grounds. Even with our staggered finish times, these times are busy, and we appeal to you to practice distancing as much as is possible when here.
If you have any questions or concerns, you are welcome to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
