"We apologise for the disruption that this will cause to our local community but we are committed to acting on considered advice and guidance in consultation with local Public Health teams and Public Health England. Only students in Year 9 are required to stay at home and they should follow the government guidance on self-isolation – this means that they should not leave the home except to seek medical care.

"Other members of the household are not required to isolate unless anyone in the home is displaying symptoms.

"In line with PHE guidance, the academy is open to all other year groups. This means that siblings of students in Year 9 should attend school as normal, unless they or someone else in their home develops symptoms."

Earlier this week year nine students from Rastrick High School were told to stay at home until September 28 after a positive case of Covid-19.
