Whitehaven Academy pupil tests positive for Covid-19


Nigel Youngman, headteacher of Whitehaven Academy has written to parents to advise them of a Covid-19 case at the school. In his letter, Mr Youngman said the pupil from Year 9 tested positive on Saturday. 

He said: "The positive result was received yesterday evening and, please be assured, that following notification of the test, we have moved swiftly to ask all close contacts of the child to remain at home and self-isolate for 14 days.

"The student was tested on Saturday after showing symptoms and we wish them well in their recovery. 

"We have thoroughly planned for this eventuality, and will do everything possible to ensure that further transmission of the virus does not take place.

"If you have not been contacted by us, or track and trace directly, it means that your child did not come into close contact with this student, and therefore can attend school as normal.

"I have written to you immediately, as I am aware that parents will be anxious about this development. This situation has happened in a number of schools across Cumbria and, as in other schools, we will take further direction from Public Health England."
