School's Ongoing Response

We recognise that these are difficult and worrying times for everyone, and we are doing everything we can to minimise the upset and concern with pupils. We understand the concern from families, but want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to manage this situation in the best interests of our children.

Our school is currently open to support keyworkers only in an emergency to continue in their role, however our office is being manned remotely and the best way to contact school staff is via text on 07441 908196

We know that the current measures in place are difficult for many of you, and like us, you are missing family and friends, but please, please continue to follow the advice by staying at home and keeping yourselves safe. We are praying that this period will be over as quickly as possible, and we are counting down until we can open our doors to you all again.
