Covid 19

Contacting School

The e-mail addresses provided during school closures are no longer monitored. Should there be another national lock down or a local lock down we will re-active them. Please use your usual methods of contacting school – phone, school e-mail address, Parent Pay, Facebook.

Covid-19 Symptoms

This Parents/carers guide to Covid should answer some common FAQs.

We know it can be confusing deciding whether a cough is a cold or COVID symptoms. We hope this information from Boots will help with this.



This Daily Mirror article has a recording of a ‘COVID cough’ this may also help when making your decision. Please be aware this is an out of date article and therefore the information about isolation periods has since been updated.

Remember if you are still unsure you should isolate until you can get further advice from 111, 119 or your GP. Please be aware these services are in high demand, so first consider if it is necessary, if so please be patient.

Children working at home


Please read the following document to find out what you can expect with regards to home learning should your child need to self-isolate or during periods where school may be operating within lockdown restrictions and not all children are able to access face to face education.
