This is the place where we will be keeping you up to date about what is happening to keep our children and families safe during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Please check you children's book bags for letters. News is updated regularly by the government and we will be keeping you informed at all times as news breaks.

We have cancelled ALL assemblies and school trips. We have cancelled visitors coming into school. This is just as a precaution to keep our children safe.

Please keep visits to the school office and phone calls to school to only the most urgent reasons and let us know if you suspect your child has the virus.

It is really important for us to stay calm and not be alarmed. Remember all the advice about washing hands, not touching your face and staying safe.

In the event of a school closure and you need to contact school, please use the contact us e mail address


However, here is a timetable for your children to use should we be told to close school. Individual year group home-school work can be found on the class pages.

YEAR 6 - please look on your class page for a more detailed timetable to support your home-school learning.
