The whole of year 13 at South Bromsgrove High self-isolating after two more Covid cases

THE WHOLE of year 13 at South Bromsgrove High School is isolating after two confirmed cases of Covid-19.

The school sent out letters to parents detailing the news and that the ‘year 13 bubble’ would be shut for 14 days.

In the letter it said it was not necessary to close the year 12 bubble owing to the social distancing measures in place between the two-year groups in communal sixth-form areas.

The school is continuing to monitor the situation and is working closely with Public Health England.

It reiterated its advice that Coronavirus for most people would be a mild illness.

“The school remains open and provided children remain well they can continue to attend as normal.

“We will keep this under review.”

Last week we reported the first confirmed case at the school which was in another year group.

A spokesperson for Worcestershire County Council said: “Two further individuals from South Bromsgrove High School have tested positive for Covid-19.

“The school continues to be supported by Public Health.

“Students in the affected year group are now also self-isolating for 14 days in line with guidance and will continue their learning through remote access.”
