31.3.2020 Coronavirus (COVID-19): what you need to do

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
  • If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • Do not meet others, even friends or family.
  • You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.


Government advice is:

If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.

Educational provision will be available for them – our school will remain partially open as long as it is safe to do so.  

Please let us know if you intend to send your child into school as soon as possible, so that I can risk assess numbers.

We will open from 9.30 – 2 each day. If we do not have enough staff to safely open with the number of children who intend to come in, we will run a rota system and I will update parents.

If your child is in school, they will need to be provided with a packed lunch, a snack and a bottle of water unless on Free School Meals. They will not need to wear uniform. 

Transport is currently very limited as driver numbers are low. We will update as this changes. 


School remains open as per the guidance from the DfE and Public Health England.  You are advised to isolate for 14 days if you or any member of your household shows signs of Covid 19, especially a raised temperature and/ or persistent cough.  We will provide work through online and paper based resources.

We will keep you updated via emails, the website and texts.  A letter will be going home tonight with this information. 


We are following Public Health England advice and keeping the school open. Please  continue to follow advice around handwashing and if your child shows any symptoms  of Covid 19, you are advised to isolate for 7 days. We will keep you updated via emails, the website and texts. Please contact the school if you have any questions or concerns. 


We would like to make you aware that there is no increased risk of infection from coronavirus at this time.

As a school we always practice good hand hygiene in line with department of health guidance, which is the recommendation of how best to minimise risk.

Please be assured that no staff or students have been exposed to people from affected areas, or travelled to any affected regions.

We shall continue to monitor local and national guidance, but in the meantime please continue to send your children to school as normal.
