Please find updates and information all about the Coronavirus on this page.


As a school we receive daily updates and will keep you updated with any information we receive on Parentmail and via the website. 

Please rest assured we are doing all we can to prevent the spread of any viruses in school and are promoting good hygiene practices. Please also help us with this by encouraging your child to wash their hands regularly, not touch their face when possible and cough or sneeze into tissues and then put them in a bin.

For key worker children, if anyone in the house shows signs or symptoms, please let us know and the children will not be able to come into school for 14 days, as they will need to isolate.
