The falling rates of infection, the safety measures in place at school and the rapid testing mean that the school is as safe as it can be. There is a legal expectation that students attend school. Any absence must be reported to the school on the day of the absence, in the normal way.

Head's Message

How resilient young people are and how creative their teachers have been during what has been a difficult year for all of us. The much hoped for relaxing of the national restrictions will be a welcome relief as we move forward.

We are able to use the field again at break and lunchtime and the after school clubs will continue. The chance to focus on other activities rather than spending time alone inwardly reflecting will also benefit all our mental health and wellbeing. Thank you for all your support.

Mr J Eddy
