14th May 2020 UPDATE:

Dear Parents/Carers,

Following recent developments shared by the government we would like to assure you that we are in the process of digesting the guidance and planning a safe return for some pupils.

We understand that you are no doubt feeling anxious about your child possibly returning to school and the safety of pupils, staff and our families remains paramount to us and central to the planning process.  Full consideration will be given to all aspects of reopening and being COVID-19 secure and we hope that you will be confident with the decisions that are made.  


We will communicate with you before the May half term the school's plan for a partial phased reopening.
