The school will close on Friday 20th March but will remain open from Monday 23rd March for children of critical workers and children who are vulnerable.

Dear Parent and Carers,

Following the government announcement on Thursday 18th March, the school will be closing for children at the end of Friday 20th March until further notice.

 

However, we can now confirm that the school will be open on Monday 23rd March to provide care for children of parents and carers who work in the critical sectors identified by the government and who cannot safely be cared for at home.  

At present, we will open during normal school hours.

 

Please see the link below for further information and detailed information of each category.

The critical sectors listed on gov.uk are:

  • Health and Social Care
  • Education and Childcare
  • Key Public Services
  • Local and National Government
  • Food and other necessary goods
  • Public Safety and National Security
  • Transport
  • Utility, Communication and Financial Services

If you are a critical worker and would like your child to attend school next week, please contact the school office to let us know as soon as possible.

In addition, if your child has an EHCP for a special educational need, you may also be able to request this additional provision. Please contact the school.

 

A number of families may also be classified as vulnerable and we will be contacting you shortly to establish if you would like this additional offer for your children.

 

We will continue to keep you updated of any changes and send you and your families our well wishes at this time.

 

With thanks for your continued support,

The Senior Leadership Team.
