Message from James Wilding, Academic Principal
Whilst every week of school is busy, this time of year Claires Court is at its most active, and with every part of our antennae ever focussed on the education, health and care of our children and staff as the Covid-19 epidemic develops, I sense “a quiet, determined, responsible leadership in many different situations and contexts” across our organisation.

My quote is from Geoff Barton, General Secretary of the Association of School and College leaders, and it is so clearly evident at Claires Court. I write more in my blog and there are regular updates on our website, but please be reassured that we are doing as much as we can humanly do to ensure the school is prepared for all the various contingencies, both current and in the future.

Important information about coronavirus (covid-19) 
We are constantly evaluating the situation regarding the spread of Covid-19, and we are in regular liaison with the Department for Education (DfE), Public Health England (PHE) and the NHS to ensure we prioritise the wellbeing of our school community.

Please visit our news page for more information about our response and actions, and for links to other useful resources, including our visitors guide during the Covid-19 outbreak. We will also continue to keep you informed by email.

If you have any questions about our response to the Public Health England’s guidance, please contact Justin Spanswick, Executive Headteacher, on 01628 327717.
