A Message from the Headteacher
Please see below from Mr Mort, Headteacher
We can confirm that we have two confirmed isolated cases of students with Covid-19 at St John Fisher Catholic High School. We have taken swift action, in line with the guidance from Public Health England, including sending out a letter to all of our parents/carers.
We have acted upon definitive advice from the Local Health Protection Team to identify who (students and staff) should be in the close contact group. Due to the year group bubble arrangement and fixed seating plans which we have in place, we have been able to identify and contact a small number of students who have commenced a self-isolation period of 14 days. This has meant that we have not needed to close a full class/year group bubble.
The school remains open and both students and staff can continue to attend as normal, as long as they (and anyone in their household) are not displaying any Covid-19 symptoms, or are awaiting a test result.
We are working with Public Health England and following all guidance necessary to ensure the school environment is as safe as possible.
We wish our students a swift recovery and look forward to welcoming them back to the school soon.
