Dear Parents/Carers

School Closure from Friday 20th March 2020

It is with regret that we have made the very difficult decision, that due to staff absence and our responsibility to ensure safe school organisation, we will close the school from Friday 20th March.

This means that school will not be open to children on Friday 20th March onwards. At this time it is unclear when we will be able to reopen the school to children, but we will endeavor to do this as soon as we can. We will keep you updated via email and parent text.

Information about home learning for pupils will be sent later today and tomorrow, and if you do not already have them, packs of work are available for parents or carers to collect from the office. Please make sure anyone who collects a pack is free of any symptoms and is not self-isolating. 

We are going to be offering support to our families during this period of closure and will again confirm these details in a following letter.

If you are concerned that a loved one is unwell and showing symptoms of the Coronavirus, please follow the published guidelines about accessing medical treatment, including the use of 111.

We want to thank you all for your continued patience during this challenging time and wish you all well.

Kind Regards


Mrs J Cook                             Mrs J Evans
