Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

We are still open for children of Critical or Key Workers.  To book a place, please contact [email protected] 

We will be opening our school to these workers only when parents are scheduled to work.  The school will be open from 8:50am to 3:15pm.  There will be no breakfast or afterschool care available

If you are a “Key Worker” and are not scheduled to work, your child MUST stay at home.  If you have a partner at home who is NOT a “Key Worker”, your child should also remain at home.  This is to protect all of our children, staff and their families.

Free School Meal Vouchers

****** UPDATED ******

From Monday 20th April 2020, all children eligible for benefits-related free school meals will benefit from a national voucher scheme allowing them to continue to access meals whilst they stay at home.

Schools will provide every eligible child with a weekly shopping voucher worth £15 to spend at supermarkets while we are closed due to coronavirus.

The vouchers can be spent on food at a range of shops including Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Waitrose and M&S, with the Department for Education working to get more shops to join the scheme as soon as possible.

These vouchers will only be available during the normal term time and will not be available over the Easter break. 

Please see our Staying Safe During Covid-19 Page for further information on how to receive the shopping vouchers.
