School leaders have been asked by the Government to continue to take responsibility for Covid-19 track and trace procedures into the Christmas holiday. Therefore, can we please ask that you continue to inform school by email should a child who has been in school this week test positive up to and including Thursday 24th December. This will mean that, where appropriate, we can continue to trace contacts from the few days before symptoms began or a test was taken and inform close contacts within the school community. To clarify, we only need to know about confirmed positive cases of any pupil who has been in school this week. You don’t need to inform us of children who are isolating due to contact with a positive person. We are hopeful that positive cases will be few and that our Tranmere families will have a safe and enjoyable Christmas break. Thank you for your continued support.
