Update regarding covid and safe access into school tomorrow

Dear parents,

I hope this message finds you safe, well and warm.

Apologies for the message over the weekend but I thought it would be helpful to share today rather than wait until tomorrow.


Covid update

We have just received updated guidance from the Dfe who have updated their guidance following the Prime Minister’s announcement of new, temporary measures. We will be updating our risk assessment tomorrow but please be aware that from tomorrow:

Face coverings should be worn in communal areas in all settings by staff, visitors … unless they are exempt.

Therefore, please bring a face covering in the event that you need to enter either school’s reception and/or office space. 


Snow and untreated surfaces

Staff at both schools will be busy tomorrow morning, clearing and gritting pathways so that we all have safe access to either school.

Please can you read the information below so you are aware of the clear and treated entrances:

  • Junior school: all children and staff should access the school via the top pedestrian gate. Children will access their classrooms (including the terrapins) via the front doors/side entrance to the bottom corridor.
  • Junior school: Please note the driveway entrance will be closed as the driveway is steep and may be unsafe.
  • Junior school: The Morledge gate will be open but extra care will need to be taken if you choose to use this as the pathways will be untreated.
  • Year 6: Unfortunately, Bikeability is cancelled tomorrow so please don't bring your bike. We will be in contact tomorrow with an update once we've heard further from our trainers. 


  • Infant school: all children and staff should access the school via the top gate, straight onto the top playground. Staff will be on hand in the event that help is required on the treated steps down to the teaching block.
  • Infant school: our staff will be on hand to welcome the children. Our Early Years staff will take the children to the classroom via the internal flight of steps.   
  • Infant school: Please note the driveway gate will not be open.

I look forward to safely welcoming the children to school tomorrow. We'll continue to share further updates with you via ParentMail.


Many thanks, 


Mr. O'Connell
