We have been advised by the NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect Service that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 at Garnteg Primary School.
All close contacts of the case have been identified and have received appropriate advice to self-isolate.
The School has acted promptly and is working closely with the NHS Test, Trace and Protect (TTP) team based in Torfaen Council to ensure all appropriate measures are in place to protect pupils, staff and the wider community.
The school remains open and it is not necessary for any other child to self-isolate, stay away from school or to be tested, unless advised to by a TTP team or they develop symptoms of Covid-19.
The only classes/year group this affects is Class 1
Enhanced cleaning regimes are in place in school with a sanitising clean at the end of every school day and a midday clean of touchpoints in communal areas. A deep clean of the school will take place today.
Regular updates will be posted here.
As Headteacher, it is my pleasure to welcome you all to the website of Garnteg Primary School.
This site aims to present parents, carers, pupils, governors and guests with up-to-date information about our school, events and activities.
