Some important reminders; 

Upto February 21st 2022 (when COVID guidance changed), adults in school were asked to complete 2 tests a week to ensure the school is a safe place to work and learn. We had a 100% take up on these tests. We are very confident that this was a really positive step for everyone's health and safety. 


School is aware that Covid-19 might have caused financial stress on some families. If you need any advice please contact Julie Jackson on:  07702 669 502




Day to Day Running:

Your child's class may be led by their teacher, their TA or a different member of staff from within school. We want to keep the continuity for you and your child and this may mean that if a teacher or a TA is ill or self isolating that they will be taught by a different staff member. 

We continue to put the health and safety of children and staff as our top priority. We review our “Risk Assessment” regularly in light of new information and advice.
