A message from the Principal - Important

Re: Important information that you need to be made aware of

Dear Parent/Carer

Thank you for your on-going support of The Lancaster Academy.

I would like to inform you that a student in Y10 has tested positive for Covid-19.

In line with Public Health England advice, the following steps have been taken:

  • 19 students who have been within 2 metres of the student for more than 15 minutes have been contacted and told to stay at home and self-isolate for 14 days
  • At any time during the 14 days, if these students show signs of symptoms then they must be tested

If you have not been contacted by the school, then your child is not affected by this and should attend school as normal.

I would like to reassure you that Public Health England were very clear that The Lancaster Academy has followed all the right guidelines for getting students back to school.

I am aware that this is a worrying time for parents and I send my very best wishes to you and your families.


Yours sincerely

Anna Fisher
