How many cases in your child’s school so far?

Our children back have been back to school since last Thursday.

So far 3 positive cases in 3 different year groups.

They are in bubbles of approximately 180 students each.
2 of the positive cases have been in their year groups.
Only close contacts required to isolate.

I’m surprised at how quickly the cases are appearing. Is anyone else experiencing the same?

Assuming we’re being told if there are....

None in either school, 1260 pupils total.

MY children have been back at school 4 weeks. A primary school of 400+ pupils and a high school of 1300. No cases so far. But we are fairly rural and not many cases in our LA.

None that we are aware of certainly no classes sent home in our primary or large secondary school.

DS1s secondary - none that we've been made aware of.

DS2s secondary - 2 that I know of.

DS2s school has more students, a large proportion of which are BAME (which data said was relevant) and less space than DS1s school. Although i think DS1s school are in bigger bubbles.

None that we have been officially made aware of (all-through school Reception- Y12) but ds (y6) came out of school the other day saying one kid was off and going to be tested but minutes later we saw said kid in the shop while their parent bought an obvious hmm. Now obviously it could be just the that kids were making stuff up about needing a test and her absence absolutely nothing to do with Covid but I'd be pissed off if it was true.

I’m surprised that we have 3 (symptomatic) cases already across 3 different year groups as well as one adult - not sure if teacher or support staff. I think I was probably expecting cases to be in clusters, in classes or year groups I mean.

Each year group is in a separate building and I’m confident school are doing everything they can to be safe.

One confirmed case in DS's secondary but not in his bubble. All of the bubble told to stay home one day whilst their area was deep cleaned, then only close contacts have to stay off for 2 weeks.

Primary, no cases, went back last week. We have approx 140 in the school.

Infullbloom Fri 11-Sep-20 16:24:38

None I'm aware of. Scotland so been back a month (high school with 1000 students).

WearyandBleary Fri 11-Sep-20 16:25:46

How would we know? Surely schools can’t say Except to close contacts? What are the rules around that

JustSaying101 Fri 11-Sep-20 16:27:23

Currently zero. Been back to school for 1.5 weeks. Many of the children are displaying sniffles/cold symptoms already, which is fairly usual at this time of year, however, I think it will be difficult soon to differentiate if it's a cold or Covid without testing as Autumn and Winter set in. Expecting an onslaught of isolating and testing within the next few weeks...😫

AHintOfStyle Fri 11-Sep-20 16:27:52

None, have been back 4 weeks
