School Closure After Friday 20th March

It is with regret that we need to inform you that the school will be closed to pupils with effect from the end of the school day on Friday 20th March until further notice, following the Government’s announcements on 18th March.

The key messages are:

  • - Schools will close on Friday to most ‘until further notice’ except for children of key workers and the most vulnerable, including those who have a social worker and those who have an EHCP.
  • - Year 6 tests will not take place in May.
  • - Meals or vouchers for those eligible for Free School Meals will be provided.


We are now awaiting essential guidance on the detail, including the criteria for key workers and we will share this information as soon as possible, including details of which schools in the local authority will remain open as soon as we know.



All of our lines of communications will remain open and our enquiry emails are being monitored daily.  A separate inclusion email has been set up on and we will continue to provide support for all our vulnerable families and EHCP pupils. We remain fully committed to supporting pupil’s wellbeing and we will be updating our website regularly with learning support for each year group and advice on personal wellbeing for pupils and families.
