DUNDEE

ST JOHN’S RC HIGH SCHOOL 

  • A single positive case has been linked to St John’s RC High School. A small number of pupil close contacts have been identified and parents have been contacted by education staff to advise that their child should self-isolate for 14 days until 17 September.
  • The school remains open. 

DENS ROAD PRIMARY SCHOOL 

  • A single probable case has been linked to Dens Road Primary School. Until a test result can be confirmed, as a precaution, parents of all pupils in composite P4/5 class have been contacted by education staff to advise that their child should self-isolate for 14 days until 17 September.
  • The school remains open. 

Dr Emily Stevenson, Speciality Registrar in Public Health said, “Please be reassured that if you have not been contacted individually, your child has not been identified as a contact of a case in either of these schools, and they can continue to attend school and undertake other activities as normal. 

“Risk assessments are being carried out, however, parents should be assured that all appropriate precautions are in place and the schools remain open.” 

Paul Clancy, Dundee City Council Executive Director of Children and Families Services said, “Parents may be feeling more anxious as positive cases are identified in schools, however we are working closely with colleagues in Public Health to ensure there is a swift and appropriate response to ensure pupil and staff safety.”
