Coronavirus - COVID-19 Update

As you will be aware, the Government has announced that all schools in England will close temporarily for the vast majority of children from end of the day on Friday 20th March.  

This decision has been taken on the advice of medical and scientific experts in order to manage the spread of COVID-19 and relieve pressure on the health system.

From Monday 23rd March, pupils’ education will continue from home. We have prepared well for these circumstances and I am extremely grateful to staff across the school for the way in which they have taken on this challenge.

Please see here for details of how this will operate

 The school will, however, remain open for two specific groups of students:

  • Those whose parents are defined as key workers (employed in the NHS, emergency services or elements of the food supply chain);
  • Those who are particularly vulnerable.

We will be collecting information from you over the next few days.

We are entering times of further uncertainty, speculation and concern and our responsibility as a school, like yours as a parent, is to give our young people the learning, support and reassurance that they will need in the coming weeks.  

We will continue to update parents on a regular basis with important information as we receive it. We will continue to communicate with you by email but please do regularly check on the school’s website.

Thank you for your continued support and for working with us in the weeks ahead.

The Department for Education has launched a new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

Phone: 0800 046 8687 (Opening hours: 8am to 6pm- Monday to Friday)
Email: DfE.coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk 


Important alerts will be shown here.
