Corona Virus Update 18th March

Update – 18th March 2020

There are currently a number of staff who are unable to come to work either because they are required to self-isolate due to members of their household having symptoms or because they are in the ‘at risk’ groups.

I will be using supply staff, student teachers and teaching assistants to cover classes and some teachers who normally work part time have offered to increase their hours for which we are extremely grateful. 15% of our pupils are currently absent from school, it is therefore likely that classes will be grouped together for certain points during the day.

Please be assured that we will always keep the children safe and we will not put large numbers of children in one class.

We continue to try and reduce the number of adults and visitors coming into school so all meetings, groups and ‘Grab a Grown Ups’ are cancelled.

At the moment guitar lessons are continuing but all other music lessons have been suspended. If parents have questions please can you email the school office on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and someone will get back to you.

School Absences

We are aware that you may be having problems getting through the school office in a morning to report absences as the phones are particularly busy. 

Therefore, to report an absence for the next few weeks please follow the guidelines below:

If your child or any person in your household has a new persistent cough or fever/high temperature everyone in the household must stay at home for 14 days.  If your child is absent for this reason please notify the school by sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before 9am on the day of the first day of absence stating that they are self-isolating for 14 days.

If your child has any other symptoms please continue to ring 01666 502275 to report your child’s absence, again before 9am on the morning of your child’s first day of absence.

Many thanks for your continued support.
