This half-term the school will be closed to most children. We will be open for the children of key workers and vulnerable children. Please contact the school if you would believe you qualify for a place. Our nursery is also open. However due to our risk assessment and staff availability we may only be able to offer limited places: key worker and vulnerable children will have priority. 

Even though the school building is closed, learning will still continue. We have remote learning in place to support your child during this time. Please ensure that your child is completing the work set, attending the live sessions with their teachers and uploading their learning onto their google classroom log-in. If you need any support with this, please contact the school. If you do not have internet access, then please contact the school so we can support your child's learning in a suitable way.
