National Lockdown and School Closures
As you will be aware, the government announced at 8pm on Monday 4th January that we will be entering another national lockdown with immediate effect. This means that schools will be closed to most pupils, other than vulnerable pupils and children of key workers until the February half term.
The majority of our pupils will undertake remote learning from home for this period.

When the government confirms that schools are allowed to open fully again, we will carry out a full risk assessment and open at the earliest possible opportunity. There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our children and community.
We know that the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic are not yet over, but with your help we are determined to continue to do the very best for all our children throughout this difficult time.
