Update on Covid-19 cases at our schools

Our schools are taking immediate action as soon as it's known a pupil or member of staff has tested positive for Covid-19.

Our priority is to protect pupils and staff, as well as families and the wider community and that's why we take a number of clear actions.

Steps may include class groups or year-groups who've been in contact with the positive case having to self-isolate. Letters will be sent to parents of pupils who were in contact with the positive case telling them what to do. Parents of other children in the school are also kept informed by letter.

Our message to families is that they should listen to the advice from their school head teachers and information contained in the letters they receive which provide all the information they need to take action and to stay safe.

We will continue to take guidance from the Welsh Government and will base our information on their advice.
