We have had 204 Covid19 cases this term, including children and staff and at the time of writing have 48 live cases. Our staff are testing regularly but many parents only found their children were positive after we asked contacts of cases to have tests. They did not all have any obvious symptoms and clearly many more could unknowingly have and be spreading the disease. Consequently, we need to continue with all our anti-Covid measures and we are continuing to plan our Christmas concerts and services as strictly online events. If children are ill with any kind of infectious disease we need them to stay at home. Please take the greatest care and make sure all family members who can have the vaccine, take up this opportunity at the earliest opportunity. Masks are required for all adults on the school site and are recommended for children particularly as they are not able to get vaccinations.
