DFE & Government Guidance
Since the government advised partial closure of schools on 18th March 2020, through to partial re-opening in June and full re-opening in September, we have continued to follow all advice issued as the government, as well as guidance issued by the Department for Education.
All such guidance can be found below:
- General government guidance for schools and other educational settings - Guidance to educational settings about COVID-19
In September 2020, we welcomed the school community back fully and have worked hard to do that while ensuring that we:
- fulfil the expectations required of us in line with DfE, PHE and government guidance.
- ensure that the safety of everyone is paramount in all our decisions.
- continue to provide a high quality, well balanced curriculum to best support our pupils in their education.
Please note that from September 2020, attendance is mandatory for all pupils.
