St Davids High School

 

Statement from Claire Homard, Chief Officer for Education and Youth;

“St David’s High School is currently managing a small number of Covid cases which has required pupils in the Year 8 cohort to isolate in line with national health guidance.  

“To clarify, parents were not told in error by the Council’s TTP service to isolate. An automated text message was sent out from the NHS system following the bulk upload of pupil data.  It appears that this is an isolated incident affecting only this school and we are currently investigating in order to resolve the matter.  Ordinarily a text message would not be sent to parents of pupils.

Parents of Year 8 pupils did also receive a standard Public Health Wales letter from the school advising them that the requirement to self-isolate related to their child so it should have been clear that that the isolation was for the pupils, not the parents.

“The Council continues to work closely with the school to ensure that all those involved are clear on the requirements and are reassured.”
