Pupils told to stay at home as North Staffordshire school identifies ‘close contacts’ of covid case



Pupils have been asked to stay at home today as teachers work to identify ‘close contacts’ of a confirmed coronavirus case.

Parents with children in Year 7 at The King’s CE School in Kidsgrove were notified of the positive Covid-19 test late yesterday (November 8).

They have been asked to keep their sons and daughters off ‘as a precaution’ until it is established whether they need to self isolate.

In a letter, the school said: “Following notification on Sunday evening of a positive case of coronavirus in Year 7, we are asking that at Year 7 students remain at home on Monday.

“This is entirely a precautionary measure whilst we confirm further details with Public Health England in order to keep out school community safe at this time.

“Throughout Monday we will notify those students who are deemed to be close contacts of their isolation period and we envisage the rest of the year group to return to school as normal on Tuesday,

“School will remain open for all students in Years 8, 9, 19, 11, 12 and 13.”
