Parents of students who are direct contacts have been contacted and asked to isolate, as a precautionary measure, to allow the track and trace process to be completed.

There have been two further confirmed cases of Covid-19 at Grouville School on Wednesday, 16 December 2020.

The students are currently isolating at home, along with the rest of their households, following the public health guidance.

Parents of the students in the year groups, have been contacted and asked to isolate, as a precautionary measure, to allow the track and trace process to be completed.

A year group has also had to temporarily close from 16 December – 18 December, inclusive, due to a shortage of staff. 

Victoria College
There have been four further confirmed cases of Covid-19, in two year groups, at Victoria College on Wednesday, 16 December 2020.

The students are currently isolating at home, along with the rest of their households, following the public health guidance.

As some of the students have not been in school since 9, December 2020, Contact Tracing have advised that no further action is required.

For those students who are direct contacts they have been asked to isolate, as a precautionary measure, to allow the track and trace process to be completed.

Les Quennevais School
A student at Les Quennevais School has tested positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday, 16 December 2020.

This student is currently isolating at home, along with the rest of their household following the public health guidance.

The school has contacted parents of direct contacts and have asked that the students isolate at home, as a precautionary measure, to allow the track and trace process to be completed.

Le Rocquier School

A year group at Le Rocquier School will learn from home on 17 and 18 December 2020, due to a shortage of staff.

Parents have been contacted and the year group will remain open for children of essential workers and vulnerable children.

Students have been provided with online learning and some lessons will continue via video link.

Background

In cases above where “further action” is required, the schools contact parents and the class bubbles to ask that they isolate at home, as a precautionary measure, to allow the track and trace process to be completed.

In cases where “no action” is required it means that the student or staff member has not attended school for a number of days and as a result no further action will be taken by the contact tracing team and students can remain in school.

All schools and colleges will remain open following advice from Environmental and Public Health.

We are committed to supporting our students who have been impacted by the pandemic. Students who have to be at home due to Public Health guidelines will continue to receive schoolwork online so that they can continue with their education.

To protect the identity and privacy of the students and staff members we will not be commenting further.
