Letter to Parents 26.2.21 SSB
Spa Bermondsey Letters
13th January 2021
To the Parents and Carers of all pupils attending Spa School Bermondsey
Dear Parents and Carers
I am writing to inform you that today we were notified that two members of staff have tested positive for COVID-19. These results are in part due to our mass testing program. We are testing staff each week to identify asymptomatic people.
The safety and well-being of everyone in the school community is our first priority, and we have followed the advice from Public Health England (PHE) and the Department for Education (DfE). We have arranged for the other pupils in the child’s class, as well as anyone else (staff and pupils) identified as a close contact, to go home and to quarantine for 10 days or to complete serial contact testing for 7 days.
If we did not call you on Tuesday to collect your child, it is because your child has not been in close contact with the affected persons, and should therefore continue to attend school (providing they do not develop symptoms).
Please contact the school if you have any concerns. Please also read the attached information, which has been provided by Public Health England.
