St Julians School

Positive LFD Result (Year 7)

Dear Parent/Carer,

We have, unfortunately, been notified early this morning of a positive LFD test result in Year 7. 

In line with guidance from Welsh Government, Environmental Health and Newport City Council, in the event of a positive case in a “contact group”, i.e. a year group, then all students in the year group must self-isolate. This means that students in Year 7 will now need to remain at home and self-isolate.

Please note - This is the result of a positive Lateral Flow Test (LFD). We are awaiting results from a PCR test to confirm the positive case. If this test comes back negative, all students in Year 7 will no longer need to self isolate.  We will notify you as soon as possible via the usual platforms: staff are working throughout the summer holidays.  

Teaching staff will set work via Google Classrooms for P1 and P2. Mr King and form tutors will also contact students regarding tutorial activities later this morning. 

Yours faithfully


Mr. D. Curtis
