Downham Market school has remote learning resources for those self-isolating after coronavirus cases




A West Norfolk secondary school has said it is the proud of the resilience of staff and students after positive Covid-19 cases were confirmed at the site.

Downham Market Academy has confirmed close contacts have been informed and will begin a period of isolation after positive tests were discovered over the last two weeks.

Senior deputy headteacher Mark Eastwood said the school has worked closely with colleagues from the Trust, the Eastern Learning Alliance, Norfolk County Council and Public Health England after the Covid-19 cases were confirmed.

Mr Eastwood added: "We have been determined that the national restrictions will not negatively impact the education of our students and their long term futures any more than it already has and so we continue to offer a full curriculum where all our students study a range of subjects with specialist teachers.

"We are confident that our remote provision for students self-isolating will allow them to continue to learn and follow a relatively normal school day. Our remote provision has been enhanced by the introduction of our iPad scheme where every student has been provided with an iPad for use at home and in lessons at the Academy."

The school also thanked parents, staff, students and the community for continued support and encouragement at this challenging time for the nation.
