​Confirmed positive COVID-19 case at JC6 (08.10.20)

Today Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre received confirmation that a member of staff had tested positive for COVID-19. Upon receiving this information staff contacted the COVID-19 DFE hotline and Public Health England East Midlands and closely followed all their advice and guidance.

Due to the robust COVID-19 safety procedures in place, only 23 students in year 12 were identified as possibly having been in close contact with the member of staff and were subsequently sent home to self-isolate. Parents and carers of the identified students received a text notification to inform them of the situation and the students were sent home with a letter providing further information on self-isolation.

A copy of the letter given to students who are required to self isolate can be downloaded below.
