COVID19 Updates

In this time...


Lord Jesus

In the mist of a storm, 

You said 'Peace, be still.'


Let our anxious fears fade away,

Surround this school in faith, hope and love,

Bring our nation through this challenging time.

Grant wisdom to those with great responsibility,

Gentle hands and patience to those care,

And healing and hope to those who contract the virus.

Following the Government’s decision to close all schools from 3.15pm on Friday 20th March 2020 until further notice, all school staff will be working to support and implement the Government’s COVID-19 strategy.

You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus!

  • Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
