Corona Virus

We are in daily contact with the Local Authority and are receiving the most up-to-date information from Public Health England and the Department for Education. 

Updated guidance: The whole family should self-isolate for a period of 14 days if any member of the family presents with a temperature over 38 degrees OR a persistent/continuous cough. 

The school is taking this seriously as a precautionary measure and will, if necessary, send any pupil home who they deem to meet the above criteria.

We will continue to alert you immediately through School Ping as we receive updated information.

Thank you for your support at this very unsettling time.

Through our teaching of the Gospel Values, we aim for all children to aspire to be the best they can be in the wider world, helping them to develop an enthusiasm for learning and persevering in the face of challenge, making positive choices about how they live and behave.

    Upcoming events
    Good afternoon, Having consulted with the governing body, a decision has been made with regards to upcoming events taking place in school. As a precautionary measure, and to avoid parents having to make difficult decisions the following events have been cancelled: 1) Year 1 Parent Partnership 2) The Roman Cup squash (Years 3/4) 3) Year 3/4 Production 4) Year 5/6 Dance/music showcase This has been a difficult decision to make as I know how disappointed the children will be. I hope, where possible, these events can be re-arranged for the summer term. Sporting events including swimming and class visits are currently still due to go ahead unless further advice/guidance is received. May I remind you that your child should be self-isolating for a period of 7 days if they show ANY of the below symptoms: 1) Temperature/Fever 2) Persistent/continuous cough 3) Shortness of breath The school is taking this seriously as a precautionary measure and will, if necessary, send any pupil home who they deem to meet the above criteria. We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone; please be assured that the well-being of our pupils and their families is our priority. Kind regards,
