A case of COVID-19 has been confirmed in Pennington Infant School. As a result, the Infant School has decided to close until Wednesday 10th June to give time for a deep clean. We have asked all our students that have siblings that were in contact with the ill student to self-isolate.
Another student is being tested (although they are also exhibiting symptoms of a common childhood illness from which they often suffer) and we will know the results within 24 hours. We have decided to close this student’s pod until this time and will contact the relevant parents.
As the pods are not in contact with each other, we will continue to be open for the other students. It is still your choice whether or not to send your child to school. We understand this is a worrying time and we have made every effort to ensure the safety of the school community and we appreciate your ongoing support.
