Spalding Grammar School takes action after positive COVID-19 cases
A Spalding secondary school has confirmed today (Wednesday) that a number of its students have tested positive for COVID-19.
But a senior staff member at Spalding Grammar School also said that "the robustness of our arrangements" meant that, unlike other schools in the area, whole year groups have not been sent home.
No indication of how many students have tested positive for COVID-19 was given by the school.
But deputy head teacher Suzanne Ingram said: "Inevitably, we have been dealing with positive cases of COVID-19 and we continue to respond to any case in the way that we have been doing since September.
"The robustness of our arrangements in school means that we do not have to send whole year groups home at once, minimising disruption to the education of our students."
On Monday (November 16), two students at University Academy Long Sutton were reported to have tested positive for COVID-19, with four positive cases having been confirmed at Spalding High School in recent days.
