COVID-19 Information

The national lockdown changes what you can do from 5 January 2021. 

Due to the National Lockdown 5th Jan 2021 primary schools are now closed to all pupils apart from children of essential key workers and vulnerable families (children with EHCPs or support from a social worker).  For this group of children, education in school should remain the last resort; in order to contain and reduce the transmission of the virus, the number of pupils in school should be kept to a minimum. Small bubbles led by teaching assistants will operate in school for the two groups of children above.  All learning for our pupils will now be delivered online via the Class Dojo Portfolio App alongside physical work packs being sent home.
