We have been informed some parents have received an email stating: ‘As schools will be closing, if you're entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we'll make sure you're supported’. This is a scam email - do not respond, and delete immediately.

NEW ANNOUNCEMENT 23.3.20

***********************************************************

Schools have not been instructed to close as yet but we will be ringing around parents again in the morning to check that their work is absolutely critical to the fight against Covid-19 and make sure that sending their children in to school is the absolute last resort following the further announcement tonight.

 

Please, if you can, STAY HOME - SAVE LIVES!

IMPORTANT NEWS 22.3.20

 

Please can we remind everyone that the advice from Government, reiterated by the Secretary of State for Education on Saturday evening, is to keep your children at home if you are able to.  This needs to be the first priority in order to keep all pupils, parents, other relatives and staff safe and reduce the demand on the NHS.

 Secretary of State for Education

Please refer to the flow chart in order to help make the right decision in playing a part in combatting the virus.  The more pupils we have in school, the higher the chance of other children and staff getting the virus.  Children staying at home can prevent this and further unnecessary strain on the NHS.
