School Closure Information
CORONAVIRUS - information regarding the spread of the virus, and its impact on our school (19-03-20)
This page will be updated as regularly as possible with information regarding the spread of coronavirus, and its impact on our school.
School remains open as usual on Thursday and Friday
As advised by the Government, school will continue to operate until Friday 20th March, so long as we have enough staff to do so safely. Children should attend unless they present the main symptoms.
From Monday 23rd March, the announcement by the Secretary of State said that we will only be open to children of core workers, children with an educational health care plan and children supported by a social worker. This is an entirely different role for schools and school staff. It is primarily about care, not education.
Please can you contact school if you feel you meet the criteria of being a Key Worker by 12:00pm today (19/03/2020)
Parents are advised to read the government's guidance on staying at home in the case of suspected coronavirus infection. This is based on the most significant symptoms of:
· new continuous cough, and/or
· high temperature (37.8°C)
If children, or anyone in your household develop either of these symptoms, they should be kept at home for a period of 14 days from the onset of the symptoms. See stay at home guidance below:
In school, we will continue to encourage regular handwashing, and the use of tissues to 'Catch It, Bin It, Kill It”.
Any further information will be provided on this page as and when it is available. Up-to-date information on the actions taken by Public Health England are available on their website:
Class teachers will upload activities, as previously detailed in the letter sent home on Tuesday 17th March 2020, from Monday 23rd March 2020.
Thank you for your understanding and patience in these unchartered times.
