CEO Message to Parents/Carers

I am taking the unusual step of writing to all parents/carers of pupils in The Dean Trust during these difficult times. We wish all our pupils who are ill with Covid19 a speedy recovery.

I would like to begin by thanking you all for your incredible patience and support, particularly those families affected by year groups having to self-isolate at home.

I am however seeking your further support. We have recently had cases of pupils coming into school who are clearly unwell. A number of these pupils have subsequently tested positive for Covid19. As a result, we have been advised by Public Health England to send home classes and occasionally full year groups of pupils.

I would urge that all our parents and carers remain vigilant of any symptoms that their child has that could indicate that they have Coronavirus (COVID-19) and ensure that they remain at home. It is then very important that contact is made with the local health protection team and a Covid19 test is taken.

We are making every effort to keep as many pupils in school as possible but to succeed, we need to work together to limit the risk of transmission within our schools.

Once again, thank you for your continued support during this challenging time.

Tarun Kapur CBE
