Coronavirus (Covid-19) New Information

19th March 2020

As I am sure you all now know we will be closing on Friday for the foreseeable future as directed by the Government.  We are currently awaiting confirmation from the Government of the key workers they want to be supported by schools, for example doctors, nurses and police officers etc by us continuing to take their children into school. 

We will be asking you to let us know as a matter of urgency if you are employed in any of these roles and whether you want your children to attend school.  This will enable us to only have the necessary number of staff in school to teach the children and keep them safe.  You do not have to send your children to school but you must make adequate arrangements for them to be cared for at home.  The Prime Minister was very clear that children 'should not be left' with grandparents or others in groups vulnerable to contracting the virus.

We will update the website during the day once this list of key workers is published.

In the meantime please ensure that you have read the most up to date guidance from the Government about social distancing and other measures you should take to keep yourself, your family and vulnerable members of our community safe.
