Tuesday 17th March Important update letter sent to parents regarding the current situation.

On Monday 16th March the Department for Education and Public Health England issued updated guidance for education settings on COVID-19. This guidance will assist staff in addressing COVID-19 in educational settings. This includes childcare, schools, further and higher educational institutions.


  • staff, young people and children should stay at home if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature to avoid spreading infection to others. If a pupil lives with someone who is displaying symptoms they should also stay at home, as should the whole household for 14 days. 
  • for anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period.
  • if staff, young people or children become unwell on site with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature they should be sent home


Therefore please DO NOT send your child into school with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature. Please phone the school to tell us your child's symptoms. 


You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
  • If you’re worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 – don’t go directly to your GP or other healthcare environments.

Coronavirus School Closure Procedure

Our school will only be closed if one or more of the following conditions apply:

  • on instruction from the Department for Education.
  • on advice, if there is a confirmed case within our school community.


Steps taken to decide on whether to close the school will be as follows:

  • The Headteacher will liaise with the Local Authority and Chair of Governors and a joint decision will be made whether the school should be open or not should it not be under instruction from central government.

The school is currently CLOSED on instruction from the Department for Education. The school is only open for a small number of children; children of critical workers, those with EHCPs and vulnerable children.
