Please do NOT send your child to school on Monday 23rd March and beyond unless you have received confirmation email from the school. Please note that the school building and grounds will NOT BE OPEN to any other children or visitors (unless pre-arranged).

Message from Gavin Williamson, Education Secretary – 22.3.2020:
‘You should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response.

 
If you are able to keep your child at home, you should.’
