Our schools are minimising the number of visitors they receive, as well as the amount of time visitors spend on the school premises, during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. This will help to minimise group mixing and make it easier to maintain social distancing in school.
We expect all visitors to: 1. only visit the school premises if absolutely necessary. Please phone instead, request a call or request an online meeting if possible. 2. not enter the premises if you or any members of your household have symptoms of coronavirus. 3. clean your hands with alcohol gel (provided) when you enter and leave the building. 4. follow the same procedures as those in place for staff, ie social distancing (2m), avoid touching surfaces and do not enter areas of the school without the permission of staff.
Thank you for your support in keeping our pupils, staff and families safe.

"Achieving Our Best Together"
Our purpose is to prepare children for a future that we cannot yet envisage. To this end, we provide a safe and happy yet challenging and aspirational learning environment and a curriculum which supports all children in developing high moral standards, ambition and an enjoyment of learning. The acquisition of basic skills is a platform for developing successful learners who are creative and independent. This will allow our children to apply themselves to whatever challenges the future has to bring, and equip them with a growing appreciation of the important part that they will play in the world around them.
