Dear Parents and Carers,
We write to inform you that, in-line with other schools there are a small number of staff and students who have tested positive for Covid-19 at the Academy. We appreciate that this may be concerning and whilst it remains a small number, we want to assure you we are doing everything we can to keep numbers as low as possible.
We continue to:
- Encourage regular handwashing
- Offer frequent opportunities to gel hands
- Ensure students are wearing a facemask in communal areas
- Practice the ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’ routine by supplying tissues/bins in every learning space as part of the sanitisation stations, with hand gel always available
- Keep going with our enhanced cleaning regime throughout the day
In order to ensure we are doing all that we can, we arranged a meeting on Thursday afternoon last week with the Health & Safety Manger of the CLF along with a North Somerset Public Health Consultant and other representatives from the Local Health Protection Team. We reviewed the cases and talked through the systems of control we have in place within the Academy. No additional measures were suggested to our current rigorous processes. The team were happy with our swift and thorough systems of contact tracing. We will continue to follow this procedure as we strive to continue to provide our young people a good education, in a safe and well managed environment.
We will always contact individual families where there is a possibility of close contact and provide information around any self-isolation period. In the meantime, if you do have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
We thank you for your continued support.
Mr T Searle
