NOTICE - ​Information Regarding School Closure from Monday 23rd March 2020

Following the Government’s announcement, all schools are now closed to all pupils, except a few identified groups. This includes pupils who are in receipt of an EHCP, pupils who are especially vulnerable and children of keyworkers. If your work is critical to the COVID-19 response, or you work in one of the critical sectors defined by the government (see the full list here: ), and you cannot keep your child safe at home, then your child will be prioritised for continued education provision.

The Government also announced that it would be setting up a national voucher system for students that are currently entitled to a Free School Meals. The details of the scheme have not yet been published; however, in the meantime the school will be providing a packed lunch for eligible students, which can be collected from the school daily. We will provide an update of the Government’s voucher scheme, as soon as it becomes available.

Please be assured that the school is doing all we can to keep our students and staff safe and will continue to follow advice from the Government and Local Authority. ​Please continue to check this website for regular school updates
