We have been advised by a household that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 via a lateral flow test within the school. This pupil is in Class 5/6B and will be having a PCR test to confirm this this morning. This is an asymptomatic case.
Due to class arrangements this week, we have kept Year 5 pupils separate from Year 6 pupils within the class. Therefore, all Year 5 pupils from 5/6B need to self-isolate for 10 days from Monday, 28th June until 23:59pm Thursday 8th July. Year 6 pupils do not need to self isolate.
We know that you may find this concerning but we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England. A PDF copy of the email/ letter sent to affected families yesterday evening can be found here: https://www.wiggintonprimary.co.uk/year-56-classes/
The letter informs parents/ carers of the current situation and provides advice on how to support the children.
