Procedure In The Event Of School Closure For A Year Group

Dear Parent/Carer

I hope that you and your families are well.

As you may be aware, in the event of a positive COVID-19 case from a student or member of staff, the school may be forced to close to one or more year groups for a period of time.

What follows is our plan for dealing with this situation, though it must be made clear that this could change according to the advice of Public Health England and the Department for Education at any time.

In the event of notification of a positive test and in order to minimise the risk as best we can, we would seek to dismiss the students in the affected year group(s) as quickly and safely as possible, reducing their contact and interactions with others. Students will be kept in the class group that they are currently being taught until they are able to be dismissed.

In this circumstance, students in the year groups affected would not be able to use buses or public transport to travel home, as this would increase the risk of transmission to other year group ‘bubbles’. These students would need to be collected as a matter of urgency, or safe alternate arrangements for getting home made.

Any students who are forced to isolate as a result of closure will be taught through remote learning for the duration of their absence.

In order to best prepare for this situation should it arise, could you please visit https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=2ZEO4Wgo4kyLCjxlLqw-hBHgkt0fz8tBmvGIKT2NrdpUMzdFMlQzS1hES0IwTEtZRzFHWjA0TDFMVC4u and let us know how your son/daughter would travel home. This will allow us to see which students have permission to make their own way home and those who would be collected.

Alternatively, please telephone the school office on 01538 225050 or email to lhs.office@ttlt.org.uk to confirm these details, remembering to include your son/daughter’s name and year group.

In the event of such a closure, we will contact parents/carers via text and email. Please let the school office know straight away if any of your contact phone numbers change to ensure that we can get in touch at all times.

Thank you for your ongoing support. Please do get in touch should you have any questions.

Yours faithfully

P. Evans
Headteacher
