School Closure COVID-19

School Closure - COVID-19

Dear Parents / Guardians,


Following the recent update from the government we have closed the school for a large number of pupils, and are only open for pupils of parents that are key workers. 


  • A single parent
  • Both parents are vital workers


Medical professionals: doctors/nurses/midwifes/paramedic

Other health workers: employed in a medical/health setting

Community safety: Police force and fire brigade

Education: Teachers, classroom support staff, cleaners/caretakers

Workers in childcare/early years settings

Social care/domiciliary care workers

Council staff involved in key roles : streetscene, drivers, catering staff etc


There has been an update from county with regards to the Key worker roles.  Please see below:


The key worker roles include:


·         Youth offending teams

·         All staff working in prisons (including the Youth Custody Service)

·         Probation staff including:

o    NPS and CRC staff (all grades)

o    Probation staff in Courts

·         Approved Premises and Bail Accommodation & Support Service (BASS) staff including:

o    Double Waking Night Cover (DWNC)

o    Contracted services

·         Electronic Monitoring staff

·         Prisoner/ immigration detainee transportation

·         Victim support providers – contract or grant-funded

·         Third sector employees working in prison or probation, whose work is key to frontline delivery


We understand that this is a considerable time off school and we are therefore have created learning packs that all children have taken home (if your child has not taken their pack home, please contact the office on 01978 760647 to arrange its collection). Teachers have also set up each class on Google Classroom for all children to access work and other material. 


Other suggestions to go along with these pack and Google Classroom can be;

  • Doodle Maths including any extras provided by the class teacher.

  • Book reviews (Written or performed using Apple Clips, iMovie or any other recording program)

  • Any termly homework that has been set by the class teacher. This includes practical work as well as online work.

  • Daily reading.


Teaching packs will be uploaded to Google Classroom as and when they are available. 


Please remember it is all our duty to follow government guidance re social distancing. Even for key workers childcare in school should be considered a last resort and used as infrequently as possible and for the shortest time. 


This part of the website will be updated with a few 'How to Guides' for parents if they require any help accessing different apps and websites that the school use.


Thank you for your continued support.
