Dear Parents of Year 6 children, 

I’m writing to let you know, there has been a positive COVID-19 case in your child’s class. This person is now isolating. The case has been linked with a ‘variant of concern’ and there is evidence that it spreads more easily than the most common strain in the UK. However, there is currently no evidence that it causes more severe illness, increased risk of mortality or makes the current vaccines any less effective.

I would like to take time to reassure you that we have taken all necessary actions since hearing this information to keep all children at our school as safe as possible.

Please order your lateral flow test here

How to stop COVID-19 spreading

It is important that everyone is aware that although Liverpool is opening up, we still need to be very cautious about the risk of Covid-19, especially in light of the new variant. There are things you still need to do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19:

  • It’s important you get vaccinated when it’s your turn
  • wear face coverings at school drop off and pick up
  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
