Bubble Closures

 In the event that a bubble needs to close, all parents will be notified. Children will be expected to continue their education whilst at home. Please see the 'Home Learning' are of the website for more information. 


Government guidance says that the best way to prevent the spread of the virus is through good hygiene. We encourage families and children to take the following steps:

  • Washing hands regularly is the most important thing you can do! Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. If soap is not available, use hand sanitiser. 
  • Keep your hands away from your face.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue. If a tissue is not available, use the crook of your elbow. 
  • Throw tissues into the bin.
