Unfortunately, parents of around 15 students have contacted school today to report that their children have shown symptoms of sickness, and a small number of students (4) and two members of staff attending school have shown similar symptoms and have been sent home as a precaution. As a result, the school has sought advice from Public Health England, which recommends the following action: if your child is feeling unwell and is vomiting, please contact your GP in the first instance. If you are unable to contact your GP, Public Health England can be contacted on 03442 254 524. Please quote reference number 631160. We are unable at this time to clearly identify the possible source or cause.
We very much hope those who are feeling unwell do make a swift recovery and are able to enjoy their summer break.
The Summer 2 edition of our Parent/Carer newsletter is now available to view by clicking here.
As in previous years, on the morning of the last day of term students will have a celebration assembly with their year group, and take part in activities arranged by their Head of Year.
The school day will finish at 1.10pm and students will be permitted to leave. School buses will be operating to their normal timetable as follows …
1515 service 113 to Belper Triangle, Belper Lane End and Hazelwood Church
however, please note that THERE WILL BE NO SERVICE 360 (Harpur’s Coaches) to Openwoodgate, Bargate, Park’s Estate and Milford so students will need to make alternative arrangements to get home.
For those students unable to leave early, there will be supervised activities until the normal end of the school day at 3.00pm. These students should report to A6 immediately following afternoon registration.
Arrangements for the students’ first day back in September (Wednesday 5 September) are being finalised and will be posted here when available.
