Letter to Year 9 Parents

16th November 2020

Dear Parent,

I am writing to let you know that we were informed on 15th November that a student in Year 9 tested positive for COVID-19. The student concerned was last in college on Friday 13th November. I have been in contact with the Worcestershire Local Outbreak Response Team and based on their advice only a certain number of identified Year 9 students have to stay at home. These students do not return to college until Monday 30th November. The parents of these students have received a separate letter informing them of what steps they have to take. All other Year 9 students will be in college as normal from Tuesday 17th November.

I fully appreciate and understand that receiving this information may be upsetting and frustrating. Please be assured that we will continue to support your child’s learning and if your child has been asked to learn from home they will be able to access their learning via Google Classrooms. Students should aim to complete the work set each day in line with their normal timetable. If you have any queries about accessing Google Classrooms please contact bpain@blessededward.co.uk

Thank you as always for your ongoing support and understanding and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Yours sincerely,

Greg McClarey

Headteacher
