Dear Parents and Carers

We are planning to open for all students today, Thursday 19th March and Friday 20th March. We have an increasing number of both staff and pupils who are self-isolating, but we DO NOT have any confirmed cases of the coronavirus. We will inform you if this changes.

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement this evening, it has been confirmed that all UK schools will close from Monday 23rd March, for the vast majority of pupils. Some pupils, including children of key workers, will be able to attend school, if they wish and are healthy. At present we have no more details on how this will work and we expect to receive this information from the government tomorrow. Once we have the details, we will publish how we plan to make this work.

Thank you again for your messages of support in what are very challenging circumstances for us all.

Tim Jones

Headteacher
