Please find below a statement, issued in collaboration with Sheffield City Council and Public Health, in response to reports that have been shared by various media outlets online since our return from the half term break -

Before the half term break we had a member of staff test positive for Covid-19, at which point I immediately contacted the Department for Education and Public Health colleagues for advice. We can’t comment on individual cases but we can assure everyone in our school community that we have followed advice from Public Health on every occasion relating to COVID-19.


Following this, the school conducted a thorough clean in line with the guidance given to ensure the safety and wellbeing of staff and pupils.


It’s important for me to stress that we consistently followed advice and guidance, and we are confident that we are safe to keep Phillimore Community Primary school open.
