Dear Parents and Carers,
Today I have been informed of two positive cases of Covid 19 and have had to close our Early Years
Foundation Stage Bubble, this includes both reception classes and morning, and afternoon nursery classes.
I have liaised closely with the Telford and Wrekin Health Protection Hub and the bubble has been closed down very quickly and none of the children or staff that have been in contact will be in school tomorrow.
I appreciate that this may be concerning for you, but I would like to reassure you that the school risk assessments are tight, all health and safety measures have been very strictly followed, and no other class bubbles have been affected currently.
Thank you for your continued support.
In response to the queries we have had following my previous notification, for what a Bubble Closure means for the children, please see below:
*If your child’s class has been told their bubble has closed (therefore both rec classes and both nursery sessions), they will need to stay at home and isolate for 14 days. This means not playing with other children, not accessing childcare, or meeting with families or friends out of your household. Siblings and you yourselves, will not need to isolate, unless your child becomes ill with COVID 19 symptoms and subsequently tests positive for Coronavirus.
*If your child is not in any of these classes they will not need to isolate unless they or anyone else in your household is showing symptoms.
*Currently this does not affect any other classes – yrs 1-6 remain open.
I apologise that this will cause disruption for many of our families, and can appreciate the inconvenience caused by the impact of this pandemic. However, we must all make sure we do everything we possibly can to minimise the risk to others.
