Our schools are taking immediate action as soon as it's known a pupil or member of staff has tested positive for Covid-19.
The process of testing and contact tracing is part of the ‘new normal’ and where schools follow these guidelines carefully, there is no cause for alarm.
Staff and secondary school pupils are required to wear face coverings in all areas outside the classroom. Pupils aged 11 and over are required to wear face coverings on school transport. All adults should wear a face covering when dropping off and picking up pupils, or visiting schools.
Please note the autumn term ends on Friday, December 18 and pupils return to school for the spring term on Tuesday January 5.
