17th December 2020
Before we break for the Christmas holidays I just wanted to thank you for continuing to social distance and follow guidance, with the announcement today that Leeds will remain in Tier 3. (see the graphic at the end of this letter for what that means for you and your family).
Everyone must continue to be vigilant in making sure that you wash your hands, use face coverings and keep a 2m distance from people who do not live in your household.
As we move into last couple of days of term, we would ask that nobody takes any chances; if your son / daughter is unwell, with known COVID-19 symptoms or any other type of illness, please do not send them to school.
Contact tracing over the Christmas Holiday
We have received notification from the DfE relating to our responsibility as a school for contact tracing for students over the Christmas break. As you will know, the staff at school have worked hard to support contact tracing out of normal school hours to ensure that our school community has kept safe. We have had a very limited number of cases and this is thanks to everyone continuing to following guidance which has served to protect our students, their families and our staff.
The DfE have recognised that this responsibility cannot continue across the entire Christmas break when close contacts will not have been on school site.
Below are some different scenarios and how students and parents should respond:
Thank you for your continued support, we wish all of our school community a very safe and happy Christmas.
Miss S Millard
