End of term arrangements

Our arrangements for the end of term remain as published, school will close on Friday 18th December. Our staggered finish time, for social distancing, are as follows Year Six at 1:00pm, Year Three at 1:15pm, Year Five and Centre Children at 1:30pm and Year Four at 1:45pm.

Public Health England has agreed a six day window after the final day of teaching in which schools are asked to remain contactable so they can assist with contact tracing where necessary. This will allow enough time for positive Covid-19 cases to be confirmed by a test and for relevant contacts in the school to be traced.

For the first six days of the Christmas holiday if a pupil or member of staff tests positive for Covid-19 having developed symptoms within 48hrs of being in school please e-mail this information to  This email address will be checked daily between 10:30am and 2:30pm until Christmas Eve. Where pupils are required to self-isolate due to contact with a positive case after Christmas Eve you do not need to inform us about their absence until the first day of the new term.
