Coronavirus Update

Confirmation of Closure on 20th March 2020

Dear Parents


Following the latest Government announcement in its fight against COVID-19 which has confirmed the closure of schools from Monday 23rd March 2020. As a country, we all need to do what we can to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The government has given clear guidance on self-isolationhousehold isolation and social distancing.


The most recent scientific advice on how to further limit the spread of COVID-19 is clear. If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. That is why the government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend. Therefore, while we will provide an 'educational' setting for your children, if you are able to make other arrangements please do so. There is no criteria to say that is has to be one or two parents, however if one parent is able to stay at home and look after the children this is strongly advisable. 


If you feel you can prove that you are a critical worker that needs some support, then we would ask you to complete the Google form by 12 noon on Monday using the link below.


You will be asked to provide proof of your work and shift patterns.


If you are a critical worker or your child is considered to be on the vulnerable list, you will then receive a separate communication about the arrangements Monday afternoon.


If we have not contacted you and you think that you are on the critical categories list, you need to confirm with your employer that it is necessary for you to continue your role and that a place in school for your child is needed. Once you have had this confirmation from your employer in writing please contact us only if you require your child to attend school.


Thank you as always for your continued support.  Keep well.

Yours sincerely



Mr P Clarke
