Coronavirus Update

We are aware of some stories circulating about school on social media. These are entirely false. If there is ever any news of school closures or other significant developments, we will inform you directly and post information here on the school website.

Coronavirus Update

Dear Parents and Carers

Nothing of substance has changed since our last communication on this matter, but please be assured that we are monitoring all the advice from the Department for Education (DfE) and Public Health England and will take any appropriate actions as and when necessary. For those who are concerned, the DfE has launched a new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

As before, latest government information can be found here:

We are also aware of some (inaccurate) rumours circulating on social media about the lack of soap in school toilets. We don’t understand where these have come from but want to reassure parents that there is plenty of soap available in all toilets. We know of one dispenser that was broken earlier in the week, but this was fixed within 48 hours and, even in this case, there were other, working, dispensers available in those toilets. As has been the case for some time now (partly in response to issues raised at a parent forum earlier in the year) we have cleaners permanently on duty outside the toilets at lunchtimes and they frequently check the soap dispensers at these busy periods, as indeed they do throughout the whole day.

Water Bottles

As part of our plan to reduce our plastic use in school, from next term our school “Meal deal” will now include a carton of water instead of a plastic bottle.

This will still provide value for money for all students, but it will also help to reduce the amount of plastic we sell.
