See below the latest updates from Public Health Dorset about schools in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole that have had confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the last 10 days and any necessary action taken.
As of September 2021, we will no longer list schools with confirmed COVID-19 cases.
With national restrictions lifted, COVID-19 remains in circulation and we will continue to see positive cases in the community. Cases amongst school communities have become part of living with COVID-19. National guidance on schools and self-isolation has also changed significantly, so the impact on schools in terms of numbers of pupils self-isolating will be reduced.
Public health and schools teams will continue to work closely with schools to help them manage and respond to any COVID-19 outbreaks. Schools will keep parents and carers informed as required and Public Health Dorset will continue to provide regular updates on COVID-19 in Dorset.
