Coronavirus Updates

Please see todays full update letter in the Coronavirus Updates folder.

This week we learned of one positive Covid-19 case in the Year 10 bubble. In line with Public Health advice,we acted swiftly to identify contacts of this student, via timetables, seating plans and consultation with students and teachers, and asked a limited number of Year 10 students to go home and self-isolate. If this had affected your family, you would have received a message about it on Monday. The way Year 10 studentsand parents have responded to this has been really supportive, and I would like to thank you.

I know news of a positive coronavirus case in school is unsettling, but it’s likely that these will occur as cases locally and nationally rise. We constantly review our risk assessment, which is available at any time on ourwebsite under ‘Key Policies & Report’ (see this link).

A reminder, please do NOT come to school if you:

  • have coronavirus symptoms
  • live with someone with coronavirus symptoms
  • are awaiting the results of a coronavirus test
  • live with someone awaiting a coronavirus test
  • have recently received a positive coronavirus test result
  • live with someone who has recently received a positive coronavirus test result

As we emerge from lockdown and Cambridgeshire goes into the renewed Tier 2, remember that schoolremains very much open. There is great and important learning going on every lesson.

We have been made aware of a member of our school community who has tested positive for COVID 19. We know that you may find this concerning but we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England. Please see the full letter to parents and carers in the Coronavirus Updates folder.

The small number of children who have been in close contact with the individual who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) have received a letter informing them that their child must stay at home for 14 days. The school remains open and your child should continue to attend as normal if they remain well.

Please see todays full update letter in the Coronavirus Updates folder.

Please be reminded that Monday 30th November is an INSET day and we will see students bright and early on Tuesday 1st December.

Change to the Christmas end of term dates

In order to redress a portion of the additional hours staff are working to ensure the school is as safe as possible, this term will end on Thursday 17th December. Under usual circumstances, the last day of the Christmas term, (which is a shortened day), would be one of celebration. While we will strive to make the last week of term as festive as possible, we are unable to hold the usual large events (such as the Christmas Market), making this day an obvious choice to be reclaimed for family time. Students will return to school on Tuesday 5th January.
