Following the Prime Minster's announcement during the evening of Monday 4th January 2021, school is currently closed for all pupils except those who are vulnerable or whose parents are key workers. We will keep parents updated with our plans, risk assessments and the latest guidance on this page so keep checking back.
Below are translations of the self-isolation guidance that we hope will help some of our families understand the expectations. The recordings have been made by some of our staff and parents. Please note that, at the time of recording, the isolation period for close contacts of a positive case was 14 days but that from 14th December this has been reduced to 10 days.

Important Changes to Dismissal Arrangements - 7th September
We've looked at making sure all of our new systems work and that everyone is safe when they come onto the school site. We have looked especially carefully at what we had in place for collecting children and made some changes to improve social distancing and avoid congestion: * the gates will now be open for children to be collected between 3:10pm and 3:40pm so that parents do not all arrive at the same time. This works well in the mornings so we hope that it will work just as well at the end of the day * all children will remain in class until an adult is there to collect (unless children in Years 5 or 6 have been given permission to walk home alone) * a new one way system is now in place for collection times for Key Stage 2 parents (there are no changes to the one way system for Early Years and Key Stage 1)
