Due to the daily updates and Government advice, the school will try to communicate as widely as possible.
Please help us by not sending your child to school if they have a temperature or persistent cough. Please do email us for urgent support.
From Tuesday 5th January, school will be closed to the majority of pupils. School will be open for pupils whose parents are key workers, are vulnerable or have EHCP's.
The school has carried out a detailed risk assessment, signed off by ODST. The safety of children and adults within the school is our priority. The school will be following guidelines as laid out by the DFE, who provide daily updates to schools. These include: monitoring for signs of Covid 19 e.g. cough and high temperature, regular handwashing, effective, regular cleaning, availability of PPE for staff and the use of social distancing and containment of children and staff in smaller groups.
