Thursday 19th March – school is open as normal for all year groups today. However, if your child is unwell please do not send them in.  You should still report your child as absent in the normal way, remember you can also do this on the MyEd app or by emailing

Following last night’s media coverage of the government’s announcement that schools will be closed from Friday we know that students, parents/carers will have many questions today at this uncertain time. We will communicate with you all as the day goes on and ask that you do not phone school with questions unless you need to speak to someone urgently. 

Please understand that our staff have been working incredibly hard to put plans in place for this announcement but we don’t have all the answers yet. Our students, their wellbeing, their education and their future will remain as our focus over the coming days and weeks #WeAreAlder
