Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for your continued support in the fight against Coronavirus. School is continuing to work to ensure all the guidance is followed.

It is still important that we continue to keep ourselves and others safe. Please continue to follow all Coronavirus prevention guidelines, maintain social distancing and wear face coverings wherever possible.

Over the past couple of weeks rates of Covid infection have started increasing rapidly within Liverpool and the North West. Prior to half term rates in the city were 10/100,000, the latest rates in Liverpool are 125/100,000 and are on an upward trajectory.

Increasing numbers of cases are being linked to the Delta variant within the community and as a result we are expecting an announcement from central government this evening allowing for the reintroduction of face coverings for students in secondary schools.

In order to protect the spread of the virus in schools the local authority are strongly encouraging wherever possible for adults and secondary students as well as school staff to continue the twice weekly LFD tests and to report the results on the government website. Over the coming days the city council will be exploring additional measures need to increase testing uptake such as potentially reintroducing onsite testing.

The city council suspect the dominant strain in the city to be the Delta variant, which is more transmissible, schools have been asked to change their procedures slightly if there is a confirmed case which affects the school setting. In addition to isolating all known contacts, they are asking that all of these contacts are instructed to get a PCR test.

Please note that a negative PCR result does not end isolation for contacts.

Household testing

If you’re a member of a household, childcare bubble or support bubble of a member of school staff or a pupil you can now access testing twice weekly. Further details and the link can be found on the COVID-19 page section on our schools website.
