COVID-19 Case Confirmed

We have been informed today of one positive case of coronavirus within the school community at Haygrove School. Working with colleagues at Public Health England and at Somerset County Council’s Public Health Team, we undertook a risk assessment and identified the children who may have been in close contact with the confirmed case and asked them to self-isolate for 14 days from the date of last contact.

With this advice and support we were able to act swiftly and take effective action. PHE has carried out a risk assessment and is satisfied with all the measures we are taking to keep our students safe. Our response includes a comprehensive deep clean of the affected areas.

We must stress that children self-isolating at home do not need to get a COVID test unless they develop symptoms. If any other students become symptomatic and are awaiting tests or results, the guidelines state that they must self-isolate for 14 days; they must not come to school.

Clearly this has had an impact on the school community especially those students involved and their families. The affected year group - Year 10, which comprises 213 students - will have access to comprehensive online resources which build on the curriculum they would be following at school and they have been set assignments so they can focus on meaningful and ambitious work that reflects their usual timetable. Teachers will use instructional videos to support learning and give clarity on what is to be taught and practised in each subject. 

Somerset County Council will be working with us to ensure that vulnerable pupils get the support they need whilst self-isolating. The County’s e-Learning and Information Management team is also supporting us with online learning and technology. We also have access to lap-tops through a government scheme if there are pupils who need them to do their work.

A letter has been sent home to each year 10 student and to the rest of the school.

Two Shows Wow our Audiences

With two shows on one night, this year’s school production had something for everyone. With 52 young performers involved, our talented students were divided into two casts to perform both Aladdin Jr. and a 20-minute abridged version of Matilda the Musical. The original productions of both are world-wide musical hits and these school-friendly adaptations proved to be equally popular with the parents, friends and staff who bought tickets to sit in the school hall and be thoroughly entertained.

Aladdin Jr. follows the story of Aladdin, a down-and-out hero and his three best friends who are granted wishes by the infamous Genie conjured up by the magic lamp which lead them on adventures that truly test their character. Roald Dahl’s anarchy-driven yet inspirational heroine, Matilda, dreams of a better life who, despite the oppressive rule of tyrant teacher Miss Trunchball, finds comfort from her unloving family in the classroom of teacher Miss Honey and solidarity with her classmates.

With sparkling performances by all the lead performers and superb back-up from the chorus of Aladdin’s ‘Agrabarians’ and Matilda’s classmates, this year’s Haygrove School production was a high-point in the school calendar.

“With nearly 100 students and staff involved both on stage and back stage, including the band, the set designers and the tech team, this production has been a huge affair and a total rollercoaster ride! But I can honestly say I am so proud of what everyone has achieved, our students have gone above and beyond the pull together two amazing shows,” said Miss Hannaby, Acting Head of Drama.
