Coronavirus updates


School's current position: On the 8th March 2021, schools fully opened and have since continued to follow the government guidelines regarding the safety of schools during the COVID pandemic. Attendance in school is once again statutory and all schools have returned to their their former procedures outlined in their Attendance Policy.


What if my child has symptoms?

During this difficult period we are following Public Health England guidance to ensure our staff, pupils and parents are safe. Therefore, to monitor illness and reduce the possibility of infection spread we ask parents not to bring their children to school if they have one of the covid symptoms


High temperature

Loss of taste or smell


We follow the trusts flow chart see here to advise on actions which need to be taken and the government issued attendance addendum for recording attendance. See here.

If you feel unable to take your child to be tested or you are waiting for a test result, you will be asked to self isolate for 14 days. Your child may return if they have a negative test or  your child's symptoms have gone. 

Any other illness will be monitored under the attendance policy
