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 have 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.

We have continued to open for a number of children of keyworkers and our vulnerable children. If you need to access this service, please email  We are working towards welcoming small numbers of Reception and Year 1 children and are keeping in touch with parents and carers (see links below). 

Pupils eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) have been provided food parcels or meals vouchers to a total of £15 per week, per student to support them during this closure. If you feel you are now eligible for Free School Meals, please use this application form.  Once you have confirmed eligibility from Derbyshire County Council, forward this email to us and we will make sure you begin to receive the voucher support.

If you have any immediate concerns, please email and we will do our best to support you in any way we can.
