Dear Parents and Carers,
Over the weekend we have had a rise in positive cases across our school family.
32 confirmed cases
6 possible cases awaiting confirmation
3 cases whereby a member of the family within the household have tested positive
Currently the majority of cases are with our oldest children across Arundel, Bodiam and Hastings classes (22 confirmed cases).
Currently we have 8 confirmed cases across Portchester, Pevensey and Southsea classes.
Currently we have 2 cases across Lewes, Camber, Amberley and Bramber classes.
I have contacted the UK Health Security Agency today and am awaiting a response regarding any further action that we may need to take as a school. I will of course update you.
If your child is well, the expectation from the DFE is that they are in school learning. If your child is unwell, they need to rest and recover, we will not be setting work for children who are at home ill. If your child is at home because there is no-one available to bring them to school due to COVID in the household, we will set work for them.
We continue to ventilate, sanitise/wash hands in school and operate as two bubbles. Each classroom was ‘fogged’ on Saturday. Staff are still wearing masks in corridors and areas that are less easy to ventilate.
Please continue to be vigilant and test as appropriate.
Thank you for your continued support.
