Urgent information regarding Year 1 bubble closure 22.11.20

November 22nd 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

Unfortunately, I have only today been informed, of a positive case of Covid-19 in our year 1 bubble and am therefore having to close both year 1 classes. This means that Mrs Braim’s Class and Mrs Paterson’s class are both affected. I have liaised closely with the Telford and Wrekin Health Protection Hub; 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.

The individual that has contracted Covid-19 began showing symptoms on Thursday 12th November and has not been back into school since then. Therefore, all children and staff from year 1 need to isolate until Wednesday 25th November. School will re-open for year 1 and both classes are expected back into school, on Thursday 26th November.

I appreciate that this may be concerning for you, but I would like to remind and 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.

If you will have trouble getting other children to school, as you will need to stay home to look after a child isolating, please let the child’s class teacher know. There will be no attendance penalties for those families in this situation.

Thank you for your continued support.
Kind regards

Yvonne Crilly
