Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates: STAY AT HOME and WASH YOUR HANDS

We were instructed to close our schools to almost all children after Friday 20 March until further notice.  All parents and carers have been contacted by class teachers and should now know how to access home learning; please contact school if you need any assistance. Please DO NOT visit or approach our schools during this time unless you have a confirmed appointment.

Pupils eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) have been provided with vouchers or food parcels to support them during this closure.

If you have any immediate concerns, please email and we will do our best to support you in any way we can.  If your circumstances have changed and you think that you are now eligible for Free School Meals please contact us; we can look into your request for support.
