All Year 8 students at The Bay CE Secondary School have been told to stay home tomorrow (Friday) due to a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the year group.
The school has announced tonight – at the eleventh hour – that there has been a single confirmed case of COVID-19 within the Year 8 cohort.
Staff will be working with Public Health England tomorrow morning to ascertain which children need to self-isolate. Whilst this is being undertaken, all Year 8 students are being told to remain at home tomorrow.
All other year groups need to attend school as usual.
The school will be in touch with parents as soon as they can once Public Health England has given their advice.
