Wuhan Coronavirus
In light of the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus in Wuhan, China, we would like to reassure you that, as always, we are monitoring government advice and assessing any risks on a daily basis. Our advice is taken from Public Health England which can be viewed via the following link. In the meantime, our advice is as always, to maintain a high standard of hand hygiene at all times to prevent the spread of any infectious disease. Should the school be required to take any additional measures in the future we will inform you as soon as possible. If you have any further questions please feel free to speak to any one of the school nurses.

Considerate Parking
We have heard that the residents of Woodhurst Road are requesting to become “Residents Only Parking”, so please be aware of this when dropping/collecting your son on local roads and please be considerate of our neighbours. Thank you.
