Monday 16th March - Update from Mr McGillicuddy, Headteacher. 

We understand that this is a very worrying time for all.  We will continue to follow guidelines and ensure that we provide the very best education for your children within these circumstances.  The up to date government guidance is linked above  and we will continue to monitor the situation and follow directives given.

As it stands, unless your child has recently developed a new cough or fever, or your family has been directed by NHS 111 there is no need to self-isolate and students should be in school. 

We have the facilities at school to ensure that students can continually wash their hands regularly.

We will continue to update you as the situation develops.
