How to notify the Academy of a positive Covid cases during half term

Dear Parent/Carer

As the half term holiday approaches I would like to sincerely thank you for your continued support over this challenging half term. I am extremely proud of everything that our wonderful students and staff have achieved during this time, despite the restrictions and new protocols they have faced. They have shown fantastic resilience and determination throughout.

 Please can we ask you to continue to notify us if a student at the Academy tests positive for Covid over the half term period (Fri 23 October – Mon 2 November) to ensure that we are able to continue to monitor and support students/parents as well as respond to any cases and take the required actions with regards to self-isolation and the notification of close contacts. For this time period only, please can we ask you to notify us by emailing info@garforthacademy.org.uk and providing the name and year group of the child who has tested positive, as well as a phone number that you can be contacted on for further details. This email will be manned throughout the holiday period.

Can I thank you in advance for your support with this and can I take this opportunity to wish you all a restful half term,

Best wishes,

Mrs Young
