Further to this evening’s announcement by the Prime Minister, school will now be closed except to the children of 'Critical Workers' and children classed as 'vulnerable'.
If you are a Critical Worker, please bring your child into school tomorrow morning as usual. Please allow a little bit of extra time because in the morning you will need to complete a Critical Worker form and show evidence of your Critical Worker status, eg. a valid work ID pass, a letter from your employer or a recent payslip. If you are unsure if you are classed as a critical worker a full list can be found at
If you are unsure if your child is classed as vulnerable, then please contact school.
Any child attending school during this time should wear full school uniform and, for social distancing purposes, arrive and leave at the same times as during the Autumn term:-
Children with surnames beginning A - C Arrive at - 08.45am and be collected at 3.00pm

Please note, at the current time we will not be operating a Breakfast or After School Club.
Children who are not eligible to attend school must now access online remote learning. Further details will be provided tomorrow.
A provision package for free school meals will be put in place and further details of these arrangements will follow. However, in the interim, if you wish to collect a packed lunch from school, please call the office in the morning before 10am.
Please may I again thank you for all of your patience and understanding during these turbulent times.

9th November 2020 - Home learning during the Covid-19 pandemic.  

Any child isolating and not attending school will be able to access daily learning on Class Dojo. We will no longer be sending home work packs as routine. 
Children learn best in school but the daily learning which will be on Class Dojo will be up to date and relevant to the learning which is taking place in the classroom. By watching the videos, completing the work set and sending photographs of work to the teacher together we can ensure your child does not fall far behind.
Class Dojo login page -
If you require any help in setting up Class Dojo please see our Class Dojo page or contact school for assistance.
