UPDATE 23-03-2020 – A copy of the letter sent to parents and carers is available here: COVID-19 Update Letter 23-03-2020 (.pdf)

Our trust CEO, Sean Kelly has contacted all parents and carers regarding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the UK and abroad. A copy of this letter is available to view below.

The health and well-being of all children, their families and staff is of paramount importance; and the letter outlines the preventative measures each school has put in place in order to minimise the spread of infection.

As an Educational Trust, we are following the Government guidelines with regards to COVID-19. Unless your child has tested positive for the coronavirus (or has been exposed to anyone who has tested positive with the virus and is showing symptoms), they should attend school as usual (unless they are too unwell due to an unrelated illness).

We will keep you fully informed if the situation changes or the Government issues new advice and guidance.
