Coronavirus: Westcliff High School for Boys staff in self-isolation following positive testing of child's grandparent
Westcliff High School for Boys staff members, along with the headteacher, are in self-isolation after coming into contact with a student’s grandfather who has tested positive for coronavirus. The school remains open.
The grandparent had attended the School last week, coming into contact with a small number of teachers as well as Headmaster Michael Skelly. Those who had direct contact with the grandparent are now in self-isolation.
This comes after a father of a student at Belfairs Academy also tested positive for the virus.
Headmaster Michael Skelly said: “The School has contingency arrangements in place in order to minimise disruption to pupils’ education and ensure continuity of learning. I have written to parents today to explain the situation and to notify them of those contingency arrangements. We have taken the decision that this small number of staff, including myself, should self-isolate as a precautionary measure only and we all remain in close communication with the School.”
