  • Update on Closure

    Published 19/03/20

    Dear Parent/Carer,

    The government announced on Wednesday 18 March 2020 that all schools in the UK are to be closed to students, with the exception of children of 'key workers' and vulnerable children as defined by the government.  There should be clarity from the Department of Education over their precise definition of ‘vulnerable’ later today.

    In the meantime we need to get an accurate idea of the number of children we educate who are the ‘children of key workers’ as defined by the government – the Cabinet Office is due to confirm this later today.  It would help our hard pressed staff enormously if you could complete this short questionnaire by today (Thursday 19th March) at 5.00pm so we can work on having have the right resources to stay open. It is our expectation key workers will be required to verify their identify and occupation in some way by the government to ensure only children of those covered by the definition are in school.

    Please click this link to access the questionnaire (

    Thank you for your co-operation. A quick response is much appreciated.

     Kind regards,

     Emma Goodwin
