For Your Information

School is open for children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. If you have a child in any of these year groups, they are welcome to return to school full time as soon as possible. Please make sure you let us know via the school office the day before their first day back.


We are also continuing to provide childcare for children of key workers in all other year groups. Please contact the school office to find out how to book a place if you believe your child is eligible.
