School Closure

Information and resources during closure

Despite our school striving to remain open, there are sometimes circumstances which mean we are forced to close. However, this does not mean that children’s learning needs to stop – we are committed to ensuring that the education of our pupils continue no matter what. In the event of a school closure, we will take all the necessary steps to ensure that the children’s learning suffers as little disruption as possible. 

This page of the website will act as a portal to access a weekly timetable of learning for each year group during the closure of the school. We have also provided links to other websites and e-learning resources that will support your child’s learning at home.
