Updates, advice and information on COVID-19


COVID-19, or Coronavirus, is a contagious virus that has been classed as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation. 

Due to recent advice, measures to slow the spread and protect the most vulnerable in our society has meant that school will be closed from Monday 23rd March to all pupils except some specifically identified children and those children of key workers (please see the information below).

How can we help stop the spread?

Current advice is to -

  • wash hands regularly with soap and water for at least twenty seconds
  • sneeze or cough into a tissue, or your elbow
  • disinfect surfaces and frequently used items regularly
  • avoid social gatherings and unnecessary travel
  • sanitise hands after using high-traffic items such as touch screens, card machines, petrol pumps etc

If you, or anyone in your family suspect you may have the virus, or you are experiencing symptoms of a persistent cough and/or high temperature, the entire household must isolate and contact NHS 111 for further instructions and guidance. In a life threatening emergency, please call 999.


Please do not attend a walk in centre, your GP's surgery or A&E if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
