This page contains all the information that we have emailed out to parents in response to COVID-19, in case you need to refer back to any of it. You will find a list of useful websites below with advice and guidance as well as copies of all the letters that we have sent out regarding home learning, awarding of GCSE grades and general provision.
Reporting a student’s Covid 19 case
Click the button below to report a positive Covid 19 case.
The form, that needs to be completed in conjunction with your child if they are well enough, should provide us with all the information we need for our contact with the DfE and our Local Health Protection Team. If we require further information or clarification, we will contact you by telephone. We will then be able to swiftly inform the parents of all children who may be close contacts.
During a weekend or school holiday, if your child develops symptoms and was in school on either of the two days before the symptoms began, you should complete the form above.
You may also use the form to report a confirmed case at any other time if you prefer. Please remember that we do not need to be informed of cases where your child was not in school for either of the two days prior to the symptoms starting. Please do tell us, however, if the case is more significant than a minor illness. We would like to be able to monitor the situation and provide support where possible.
