  • UPDATE - 20/03/2020

    20th March 2020 Dear Parents and Carers, Following the recent announcement from the Government regarding the role schools will play during the current health crisis, I am writing to inform you of the plans we have put in place as a response to this. We remain open for children who are vulnerable and for children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home. I would like to remind you that the Government guidance ( for key workers is that: ‘Parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response include those who work in health and social care and in other key sectors (see link). Many parents working in these sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home. read more

  • UPDATE - 19/03/2020

    Dear Parents and Carers, As I am sure you are aware the Government has taken the decision to significantly reduce the number of students coming into schools as from Monday 23rd March. Schools will be closed to all students except the children of "key workers" and vulnerable students. We need to get an early indication of the number of students for whom we need to keep the school open and have sent out a survey through My Ed that we would like you to complete by the end of the day. Although the Government has not yet produced a list of key worker jobs, they have suggested that it is people who work in the NHS, the emergency services or the supply services such as supermarket delivery drivers. read more

  • Coronavirus – Advice from the Department of Education

    Advice for parents/guardians Update:We do not have any confirmed cases of Coronavirus and have taken advice from Public Health England that our school should remain open and all students should attend if they are well. Any students who are unwell and exhibit the symptoms of fever, cough, cold or respiratory problems should remain at home and contact 111 for advice.

The current advice is:For those people returning from Category 2 areas (our ski trip was in a category 2 area) If patients receive a negative SARS-CoV-2 test result, they should remain in self-isolation until either their symptoms resolve or until the end of their 14-day observation period, whichever is shorter. read more
