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.
