Home / Coronavirus Updates/School Reopening Information for Parents & Carers

23rd October 2020

Parents/Carers,

We have been advised by Public Health England that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 in Year 10 at Dean Trust Rose Bridge. We received this information this morning (23/10/20) and swift action was taken to identify all those who had been in close contact.  

We know that you may find this concerning but we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England. This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

The students who have been in close contact with the individual who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) have received a separate letter and a telephone call, asking them to stay at home and self isolate.

Dean Trust Rose Bridge remains open and your child should continue to attend as normal if they remain well.

What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19

If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they must not come to school and should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared. Anyone with symptoms will be eligible for testing and this can be arranged via https://www.nhs.uk/askforacoronavirustest or by calling 119.

All other household members who remain well, must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. This includes anyone in your ‘Support Bubble’.

Further information is available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid19stayathomeguidance/stayathomeguidanceforhouseholdswithpossiblecoronaviruscovid19infection

The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.

Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home.

If you require help with buying groceries, other shopping or picking up medication, or walking a dog, you should ask friends or family. Alternatively, you can order your shopping online and medication by phone or online.

Household members staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community.

If you are able, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period.
