Coronavirus Advice & Information


"Advice from Public Health England continues to be for education and children's social care settings to remain open, unless advised otherwise."  (DfE information 10/03/2020)


In the event of closure the School will aim to provide ongoing work for pupils to complete at home, this work will be set on Class DoJo.  Unfortunately, it is not possible at present for staff to set work for pupils who are self-isolating.  Parents are advised to read the newsletters published by class teachers and look to online sites for activities which would support topics currently being covered.  Please continue to practise year group spellings, number bonds and times tables, and read regularly with your child.


You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus!

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
