Bubble closures at Cockermouth School

Those of us with children at Cockermouth School have today received notification of a third bubble closure (in quick succession) as a consequence of a positive coronavirus test.

Some schools with rising infection levels decided to shut a week early (ie this Friday) and teach an extra week in the summer, both to ensure that any isolation periods for children and staff would be completed by Christmas (so that everyone gets a break during the Christmas holidays) and also to help reduce the rate of spread of Coronavirus at this most critical time in the pandemic.

But the government intervened to ban schools doing this.

Please do write to your MP to express your thoughts on this.
