Coronavirus Updates


We have worked hard to make sure that we are fully prepared to support students and parents when the school closes indefinitely from the end of the day on Friday, 20th March.

We will remain open to children of key workers and the most vulnerable children in our community, and will communicate with you in due course about the exact arrangements. 


Parental Communications

Our main channel communication with parents is via email, and this will continue during the closure. Please do let us know if you do not receive these emails or if your email address has recently been changed. All of our most recent emails are copied below for your convenience.

Please also make sure that you let us know of any changes to your mobile phone number as we will be aiming to call you once per week to check in on you and your family.

Learning from Home

We appreciate that it can be difficult to support your child's learning from home. Students have been given clear instructions and expectations (below) around what they should be doing and we have currently provided enough work for all year groups to fill the next two weeks. More work will be provided as the length of the closure becomes clearer.

We have also provided below some guidance booklets which detail how to learn from home and give an idea of how students can plan their day and vary the activities that they could be doing.
