Dear Parents and Carers,

School Closure

The Prime Minister announced yesterday evening that all schools in England will close tomorrow, Friday 20th March, ‘except for children of key workers and vulnerable children’. The Government guidance for educational settings has not been updated at this time, leaving everyone uncertain as to what happens next in respect of closures and provision for children in receipt of free school meals. Local Authority meetings will take place today to determine how the Prime Minister’s declarations will be implemented. I will write to you again as soon as details are released.


Tomorrow, we will send learning packs home for children to do over the time that they are not in school and additional links to learning will be placed on the school website.

Every effort will be made to try and get packs to children who are not in school at this present time.

Thank you for your patience and please do bear us and every attempt will be made to make decisions as soon as the guidance has been given.

Yours sincerely


Mrs J Carroll
