This morning we have been notified by a parent of a confirmed case of COVID-19 at Blaenavon Heritage VC Primary School.
Advice on self-isolation has been given to all affected pupils and members of staff.
The school has acted promptly and is working closely with the NHS Test, Trace and Protect (TTP) team based in Torfaen Council to ensure all appropriate measures are in place to protect pupils, staff and the wider community.
The school remains open and it is not necessary for any other child to self-isolate, stay away from school or to be tested, unless advised to by a TTP team or they develop symptoms of Covid-19.
The only classes/year group this affects is Year 4 (Blorenge Plaza) and Mrs Jordan’s class in Ty Godwith.
Enhanced cleaning regimes are in place in school with a sanitising clean at the end of every school day and a midday clean of touchpoints in communal areas. A deep clean of the school will take place today.
Regular updates will be posted here.
We have been receiving a number of phone calls from parents who are understandably concerned when their child becomes ill, asking us for advice regarding their child’s symptoms.
