Neale-Wade Academy in March sent a letter to parents on Wednesday evening (September 30) after receiving advise from Public Health England.

The Wimblington Road school will remain open, but guidance has been issued to parents and carers if their child displays symptoms of Covid-19.

“This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advise on how to support your child.

“Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus will be a mild illness.

“The school remains open and your child should continue to attend as normal if they remain well.”
