Dear Parents,

 

We have been advised by Public Health England that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the school.

 

We know that you may find this concerning but we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England. This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

 

The students who have been in close contact with the individual who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), therefore have to isolate and stay at home for 10 days, this will mean that student and staff must isolate until the end of Friday 16th July. Norton College Worcester will therefore move to offering work via our ‘on-line learning platform’, or via work packs.  Students will return to college on Monday 19th July.
