Re: Upcoming School Closure
The Government has announced that all schools must close from this Friday, March 20th 2020, until further notice to help stop the spread of Coronavirus.
As part of its announcement about schools, the Government also said that:
We expect further details on how we can implement these measures in the coming days and will liaise closely with the Department for Education to ensure that we support our key worker parents and vulnerable pupils in the best way we can. We will continue to update you on any developments via ParentMail/text and with regular updates on the school website.
Our other key aim is to ensure and maintain as much stability for the pupils’ education as possible and we have been planning for this outcome. Whilst it is not possible to fully replicate the educational experience at home, we have been working hard to put in place contingency plans to ensure pupils can still access work and teachers are able to support their learning. Separate information will be provided to you in regards to learning at home.
While schools are closed, we should all continue to follow health guidance.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the support you have shown me since I became the Head of School in September. It is an honour to work with such supportive parents, delightful pupils and dedicated staff. I very much look forward to welcoming everyone back to school when it is safe to do so.
Mr S. Mason
Head of School
