Coronavirus

In an effort to give you timely, relevant information we are setting up this information page regarding Coronavirus and its impact on our school.   Our daily updates will be published here, along with information from the Department for Education and Public Health England.

Parents should be aware that additional care is being taken at the present time to minimise the risk of the transmission of Coronavirus.  The school is following the advice of the Department for Education and Public Health England in this respect.  School routines and expectations are continuing as normal, although we are monitoring Government advice on a daily basis and making necessary changes as a result.  Should we need to make changes to school routines we shall inform parents via Schoolcomms and updating this website page.  We are encouraging pupils and teachers to wash their hands frequently and to exercise additional care in using tissues if sneezing or coughing.  Tissues are binned after use.  We ask parents to ensure that pupils come to school with an adequate supply of clean tissues. Soap is available in all pupil toilets and we do remind pupils to use it when washing their hands.

The government has set up a special hotline for any parents, pupils or staff who have concerns:
