(Last updated 26.02.21)
We welcomed the Prime Ministers announcement on 21st February which outlined the government's plan for the return of all pupils to schools and colleges, as part of the roadmap for leaving lockdown. Return to school will be mandatory for all pupils and we look forward to seeing all children in school on Monday 8th March. Please do refer to our road map below for further detail regarding our wider re-opening of school for all pupils.

On 14.01.21, the DfE updated their guidance regarding restricting attendance at schools during the national lockdown:
04.01.21 National lockdown and school closures announced by the Prime Minister
On 4th January 2021, the Prime Minister announced a national lockdown and enforced school closure. Kindergarten remains open for all pupils as an early years setting, but school is therefore currently closed to all pupils, other than those whose parents are critical workers or those children who are classified as vulnerable pupils: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintaining-educational-provision/guidance-for-schools-colleges-and-local-authorities-on-maintaining-educational-provision
We ask that all parents and carers using our school provision during enforced closure familiarise themselves with updated risk assessment for January 2021 which can be found below.
Common questions and answers:
What happens if my child is attending the Kindergarten or school provision and shows symptoms of illness prior to attending?
Please ensure that your child does not attend kindergarten/school if they show symptoms of Covid19 and follow the government guidance; https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-households-with-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection
What happens if my child has been accessing the Kindergarten or school provision and has to isolate/shield/quarantine at home and cannot attend?
If your child is at home and cannot attend school, they have access to a full suite or remote education learning opportunities as outlined in our Home learning policy and Remote Education annex which can be found below.
