13 Mar Covid-19 Update 13.03.20
Dear Parents and Carers,
I would like to reassure parents that we do not have any confirmed cases of Covid-19 (corona virus) in school.
On Monday a member of staff at RSA Academy Tipton was sent home as he had been in contact with a family member who was being tested for Covid-19.
Government guidelines state that a contact is safe to remain in work until any cases are confirmed. In order to safeguard all members of our community, we took the additional precaution of sending the member of staff home. We have also deep cleaned the classroom.
We continue to deep clean the school, and to maintain cleaning of contact points (door handles, high use areas) throughout the day.
We are focused on keeping our students, staff and families safe, and we follow all advice from the Department of Education and Public Health England. Present government advice is that it is safe for your children to attend school.
Should the situation change, we will contact you by email and via the school website. Please can you make sure that your contact details are up to date so that we can contact you easily.
