Parents and carers have told the County Press that they have been contacted this morning (Tuesday) regarding Year Nine.

In secondary schools, a whole year group is considered to be a bubble, as part of coronavirus restrictions.

Students are required to self-isolate for fourteen days, under the current rules. Six members of staff will also self-isolate.

What happens next?

If another child develops symptoms, they need to quarantine for 10 days and their whole household bubble will also have to self isolate for fourteen days.  

The Christ the King Year Nine quarantine period started on Saturday and runs until October 3.

As the coronavirus situation develops, at midday today the Prime Minister is due to make a statement at Westminster and a public statement will be broadcast at 8pm.
