We would like to reassure all our parents that we understand their concerns during this current period. The wellbeing of our staff and pupils is a major priority and all decisions, while based on national guidance, seek to reduce the risk to our school community. 

At the moment school is open.

We continue to review the situation daily and act upon official advice. The staff at the school are preparing home learning packs for pupils and will also use our digital platforms (Google, Purple Mash and Hwb) to set tasks to allow pupils to continue learning at home if the school has to close.

We have a plan in place to allow pupils to continue to attend school and where there are staff absences, we are still able to provide learning opportunities for the children.

If you have any queries please contact us at school.
