Dear parents and carers,Over the last week covid infection rates have risen significantly in Eastham and Bromborough. Those wards now have the highest rates of infection on the Wirral. This has been reflected in increased covid cases in school.So, it seems sensible to re-introduce some further protective measures, as a precautionary measure.From Monday, students and staff will wear face coverings on corridors and indoor communal spaces, but not in lessons. In addition, all assemblies will now be done virtually. We will continue to run as many trips as we can, but we will review each trip again on an individual basis. Extra-curricular activities will run as normal.I have also taken the step of cancelling our big Open Evening on Wednesday September 29th. Instead, we will spread activities out over 2 weeks. There will be a further letter about this.Happily, a new type of home test has arrived in school which we will distribute next week. The new tests are much easier to do.The attached video explains all our protective measures.I will review the measures in two weeks' time. Hopefully, by then we will have seen a reduction in the local infection rate.Thank you for your support in keeping everyone as safe as possible,Mr Goodwin ... See MoreSee Less
