Information relating to Year 10 Covid Result
I am writing to inform you that we have learnt of positive test in our Year 10 bubble at 2.20pm this afternoon. The student was last in the academy on Monday, was tested yesterday and received a positive test confirmation this afternoon.
We have followed guidance from PHE and in order to minimise future risk of transmission have identified proximity contacts for the student (based on seating plans and friendship group information) and advised those Year 10 students that they must now self-isolate for a duration of 14 days:
These pupils will return on Monday 12th October if they are not presenting any COVID-19 symptoms.
Under Public Health England guidelines, the rest of the school and Year 10 bubble will remain open. Siblings of these children should still come to school unless they present COVID-19 symptoms. All other Nottingham Academy Secondary parents are being contacted this evening to be advised of the positive test and re-iterate the expectation that their child continues to attend.
Sufficient work has been sent home to provide these students with ongoing education until Friday 2nd October when online provision will be enabled via MS Teams.
