This has been one of the most challenging weekends of my career [and there have been a few this year!].
We have worked tirelessly as a staff team to manage a return to school that has focused on both the Health & Safety and the Health & Well-being of our pupils, families and staff.
Unfortunately, the return to school has coincided with a significant spike in COVID cases in CCBC. We are all only now understanding the impact and ‘ripples’ caused by the Track, Trace and Protect system.
There have been a number of scenarios happen this weekend that have left me with a skeleton staff structure.
As a result, I am unable to open for PORRFOR A tomorrow.
***There is NO SCHOOL for PORFFOR A tomorrow.***
As explained on Friday, I will be posting work on the Facebook page tomorrow morning so that the children can access their learning at home.
I will update you on the rest of the week tomorrow.
If anyone is caught up in TTP at the High School or anywhere else please keep younger siblings at home unless you are able to keep them totally isolated from the ‘contact’ member of the household.
For ease, point 6 - A contact tracer will get in touch with your contacts. They will tell them that they have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus. Your identity will not be revealed unless you give permission. They will be provided with support and advised to self-isolate for 14 days from their last contact with you. Members of their household will not be asked to self-isolate, but should follow the social distancing guidance and avoid contact with the person isolating at home.
On this basis, we understand that it is not always possible [ or desirable] for the member of the household who is a ‘contact’ to be isolated from the rest of the family and so we would expect you to keep the younger siblings at home for the 14 day period also.
I cannot express how sorry I am that this has happened.
Please be safe and know we are doing everything we can to support you and your children to receive the education they deserve,
Mrs JD x
