Information regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The situation regarding Coronavirus is rapidly changing.

At present, schools are to remain open.

Pupils should only be kept away from school if:

  • they have been diagnosed or are being tested for the Coronavirus (COVID-19) *Please notify the school*
  • they have been advised by their doctor to be absent from school because they are especially vulnerable
  • they have travelled to one of the at-risk countries/areas listed on the Public Health England website, within the past 14 days
  • they have been in direct contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Coronavirus.

Until/unless government advice changes, other  pupil absences from school relating to Coronavirus will be recorded as unauthorised absence. Please phone the school for further information if you are unsure.


We will keep updating this information as new information becomes available.


Did you know that the best defence against the spread of disease, including COVID-19 is rigorous handwashing?

At school, we are teaching the children the correct handwashing technique, closely supervising handwashing and providing multiple opportunities each day for handwashing.
