Coronavirus (Covid-19): Update November 2020

Dear all

We follow all government guidance and regularly review our Covid-19 Risk Assessment to ensure that everything we do continues to keep our school community safe.

I want to thank everyone -parents, pupils and staff- for their continuing hard work and commitment in this regard.

Please click here for a video explaining the measures we have introduced and what they look like in school. Please note that we are operating a staggered start and end of the day and a one-way system. It is really important that you follow the timings specified and maintain social distance (2m) with other pupils and parents.

Our full school Covid-19 Risk Assessment is regularly reviewed and updated (latest 19 October), but you can view previous versions in the C19 section of the Policies Page. You may also wish to read our subject specific risk assessments for P.E., Music, and our risk assessment for Safeguarding (in the event of a school closure) and Enrichment clubs.


Our Covid-19 Frequently Asked Questions Guide for Parents will support you if your child is unwell and you are not sure what to do. If you suspect your child has Covid-19, call 111 and do not bring your child into school unless advised that it is safe to do so. 

Home learning:

In the event of a local lockdown or if a class bubble needs to be dissolved, please see the Learning from Home area of this website for guidance and support to continue learning from home including our Continuity of Learning Strategy.


Our weekly newsletter also contains the latest news and information to support everyone at this challenging time. This includes a weekly safeguarding section and Covid-19 symptoms guide.


As ever, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Take care and stay safe,


Mr William Power

Head teacher

Mrs Harry Paget-Wall Collins
Executive Principal
