St Michael's Catholic Primary Academy and Nursery sent a letter to parents today saying there has been one confirmed case within their Year 4 bubble.

The letter says: "We have been advised by Public Health England that there has been one confirmed case of Covid-19 within our Year 4 bubble.

"We have followed the national guidance and have identified that your child may have been in close contact with the affected individual.

"In line with the national guidance, we recommend that your child now stays at home and self-isolates until October 1 (14 days after contact).

"You will shortly be contacted by phone by myself, or Mrs Brereton, in order for you to ask any questions you may have, and to arrange for your child to be collected.

"Parents are asked to collect their Year 4 child by 2.45pm today, or earlier if possible. Siblings should be collected at their usual dismissal time.

"We are asking you to do this to reduce the further spread of Covid-19 to others in the community.

"If your child is well at the end of the 14 day period of self-isolation, then they can return to usual activities and return to school on Friday 2 October."
