We have been so lucky as a school to only have 3 bubbles isolate since return to school in September 2020. However, since restrictions have started to ease we have had an increase in the number of children and families having to self isolate because they have been identified as a close contact.
Yesterday saw the highest absence we have had due to self isolation. This tells us how rife the virus still is and how quickly it is spreading still.
As we approach the summer holidays, I am sure that none of us want to be isolating as I know many of you will have plans.
We are asking that you remain extra vigilant over the next few days as we approach the end of the school year. I have copied the link below which gives Durham County Council’s latest advice and guidance especially around the full lifting of restrictions on Monday 19th July. However if you have been a close contact of a positive case, you still have to self isolate – this restriction does not get lifted until 16th August.
Today we have staff who are self isolating because they have been a close contact. We will try our very best to cover classes as best as we possibly can without compromising the integrity of our class bubbles.
Thank you for your support in helping to keep our school community as safe as we possibly can in such difficult times.
