Coronavirus presents an unprecedented challenge and has now been declared to be a "pandemic". It is highly likely that the virus will have notable and potentially significant impact on our school and local communities. We monitor the on-going situation very closely and will keep this page updated for you as necessary with formal guidance and useful links.
We follow guidance from the DfE (Department for Education) and Public Health England when making decisions relating to Coronavirus. This guidance can be found by following the links below. We thank you for your continued understanding and support over school procedures for dealing with Coronavirus.

Updated information over School Closure 19.03.20
Schools will close to all children except those classed as vulnerable or children of Key Workers (still to be defined fully) from Friday 20th March.
The closure is indefinite.
Arrangements for children of Key Workers and Vulnerable children for next week and beyond will follow once the Key Worker list and school organisation guidance has been published. This will be updated here. If your children are in one these categories please let us know whether you intend to send your children in to school.
