Coronavirus

You should now only send your child to school if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response. If you are able to keep your child at home, you should.

 

Sending your child to school in the current emergency, unless there is absolutely no safe alternative and because your job is critical front-line work, may cost lives and undermine the life-saving work of the NHS.  Please think first.

 

The school continues to provide supervision for the children of key workers on school days. The guidance about this provision can be found here:
