School Closure Update

Dear Parents and Carers,

Following the Prime Ministers announcement on Monday 4th January 2021 confirming School closures until February half term 2021, school will now be closed to all pupils except for pupils of critical workers and vulnerable pupils.

Returning Pupils

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Firstly, please allow me to wish you all a very Happy New Year. I hope that 2021 will be a much better year for us all. Over the past few days, you will have undoubtedly seen lots of news/media coverage regarding the revised tier system and school closures. I appreciate that this information can be confusing. Therefore, please allow me to explain the current position for our school.
