19.10.20, 8.20pm:  Firstly, we can only apologise for the extremely late notice about the schools being closed tomorrow , knowing many of you need to organise childcare. This is due to the procedures we must adhere to with PHE and the final decision only came through in the last hour. As you can imagine, this decision, especially this late, has not been taken lightly.

HOME TIMES: Y6 & Y5 3.20pm from the playground. Y3 & 4 3.25pm from the playground except Fridays: Y3&4 1.05pm;  Y6 1.10pm (door near bike park);  Y5 1.15pm

Please support the school C-19 systems by arriving only at the times for your child's year group - thank you.

Covid-19 symptoms? What to do...

During the Autumn term many children get common coughs and colds. We understand that many Parents/Carers are a little unsure whether to send their children to school.

If your child develops any of the following symptoms: new persistent cough, fever or a change in, or loss of, your sense of smell or taste - you need to do two things: 1) You need to order a test immediately. You can do this online at nhs.uk/coronavirus or call 119.        2) You and anyone in your household must immediately self-isolate until you receive the results of your test.   If the test is positive, you must continue to self-isolate for 10 days from when the symptoms started. Anyone in the household must continue to self-isolate for a total of 14 days. If the test is negative, everyone in your household no longer needs to self-isolate. and can return to normal.      Please note that common cold symptoms, including runny nose, are normal - keep your child at home for a day or two and if other symptoms don't appear, they can return to school. If other symptoms appear, please get your child tested asap. At all times, as we always expect, please call the school by 9.15am to inform us as to why your child is not in school and keep us informed. Thank you for your support in these unusual times.

We have marked out and are applying a strict one way system in the main reception area and around our school building.

We expect anyone coming into school to follow the notices, markings & instructions of staff. 

Please wear a face mask around our school.

We want to say, a huge THANK YOU to all the donors who have sent in cheques or 'presents' to our school after hearing us on Radio 4/ reading the article on BBConline. It was not why we did the report, but it is lovely that so many people wanted to help us - it's been amazing!
