Positive Covid-19 Cases between 19 -24 December
As term ends on Friday 18 December, the school will still need to inform parents where we have had a positive Covid-19 case and symptoms within 48 hours of being in school. • Between Saturday 19 and Thursday 24 December if a pupil or staff member tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms within 48 hours of being in school (i.e. symptoms that start on Saturday 19 and/or Sunday 20 December and after testing the case is positive) please contact firstname.lastname@example.org We will then start to assess the seating plans and potential contacts and inform families of students who will need to self-isolate. Communications received after 4pm will be managed the next day with the exception of Thursday 24th December when the school will cease the process. • Where a pupil or staff member tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms more than 48 hours since being in school, the school should not be contacted. Parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace. Therefore, please contact email@example.com if you fall into the first category and leave contact details and we will get back to you the same day if before 4pm.

Macbeth by Priory School (Shakespeare Schools Festival Nov 2020)
Despite the challenges of lockdown and restrictions of Covid, a dedicated group of students have demonstrated commitment, reliance and determination to rehearse and deliver a ‘punk’ version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. It gives us great please to be able to present a video recording of the live show which was held in front of a socially distanced audience of Priory staff. After watching this I am sure you will agree that the students have demonstrated so many positive attributes – we are so proud of them! Our thanks also go to Ms Dimoglou and Ms McCall for their guidance and support plus the staff who helped with the set, costumes, lighting and filming and many other necessary aspects of running a performance. Enjoy…
