COVID-19 updates

This page is updated on a regular basis.  Please check back here as a matter of routine, as well as keeping up to date with emails and texts sent to you from the school.

Please see the letter at the bottom of the page for a September update.

September 2021

Following the change of government rules on Monday 16 August, and the guidance received from both local and national government, we continue to liaise with Public Health England as well as with our Emergency Planning and Health Protection Officer at South Glos, with regard to COVID protocols with school. 

The change of process/protocol is the emphasis on the Government Test and Trace team to identify all contacts of a positive PCR result.  There is now no expectation:

  • for schools to do any tracing of contacts;
  • to inform parents;
  • to close bubbles.

We will continue to follow government guidance and will keep you informed.  Please ensure that you check in on a regular basis across all our messaging platforms.




The Department for Education has a helpline to answer questions about the virus related to education.  Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

Phone:  0800 046 8687
Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)

For further information on COVID-19 please see the Government and NHS guidelines here which are updated on a daily basis:
