All schools within the The Bath & Mendip Partnership Trust are following advice received from the Department for Public Health and the Department for Education and are closed as education settings until further notice. We are monitoring and adhering to regular guidelines and directives received from both of these bodies.

Across the period of school closure, staff are keeping in regular contact with families using the school’s Class Dojo platform. Contact includes the setting of work and a range of engaging challenges to support home learning.

When we receive notice to reopen, parents and carers will be advised through the school’s usual parental communication routes, including the posting of updates on the school website.

Staff are committed to playing an active role in the national campaign to halt the spread of coronavirus. This includes working from home where possible and providing weekday childcare from 8.00am – 4.00pm where this is required by critical workers to enable them to complete their essential work. If you require a childcare place, please request this by sending an email to the school office providing a minimum of 24 hours notice and stating the dates and times that childcare is needed.
