I am writing to update you following my message yesterday about the school being closed today. I have been in contact with Public Health and the Local Authority this morning and they have advised that we have followed all the correct steps to keep our school community safe by closing the school today.
Our premises officers have both been advised to self-isolate, but neither have symptoms since being in contact with the person who has tested positive for Covid 19. I want to reassure you that none of our children came into contact with the person who has tested positive. There is no need for any of our children or other members of staff to self-isolate as a consequence.
Unfortunately, due to being unable to arrange for a cover premises officer at such short notice, the leadership team along with the Chair of Governors have had to make the decision to close the school again tomorrow. As you will appreciate, our premises officers play a key role in ensuring that our children are kept safe and secure during the day, and with health and safety being a priority, we must be confident that we can open the school and keep everyone safe.
Therefore, I am writing to inform you that Oaklands will be closed again tomorrow, Friday 30th October. We will of course keep you updated.
