Coronavirus update

Dear Parents and Carers,

RE: Coronavirus Update

You may be aware that Public Health England updated advice last week with respect to Coronavirus. As it stands, our guidelines are for school to remain open whether or not we have a suspected or confirmed case of the virus. They also ask that you stay at home for 7 days from the start of the following new symptoms:

  • A new, persistent cough
  • And/or a temperature of 37.8 degrees or above

Please be reassured that we are doing everything we can to keep the children and adults safe in school. Children are washing their hands regularly, we have ensured all classes have hand sanitiser available and have also installed dispensers in both dinner halls. We are currently reviewing all events coming up in school and will inform you of any changes.

Staff and student absence is currently low. However, we are making plans for partial opening of school should staff absence increase.

In the event of an enforced whole school closure, communication in the first instance will be via text message, email and the school website. Further to that, communication with your class teacher will follow, with regards to supporting your child’s education at home. Please make sure that the school have the most up to date email address for you and that you are signed up for class Dojo.

I shall continue to issue you with the updates from the Government. In the meantime, please do take your on-going welfare and advice from Public Health England.

Yours sincerely,


Lyndsey Shepherd

Head of School
