Coronavirus - Update
The Government is asking parents to keep children at home whenever possible – schools remain open only for children who need to attend.

Coronavirus Updates

Partial re-opening from Wednesday 3 June

Who can come to school?

Current Guidance

Following the update from the Prime Minister on Sunday 10th May the guidance for schools at the moment has not changed. We are still closed to all children, apart from vulnerable students and children of key workers. The Government is still asking parents to keep children at home whenever possible.

Reopening of Schools

Schools have been asked to prepare for a gradual reopening from 1 June.

We will share further information on that as soon as we have received it from the Government. 

Are you a key worker?

If you qualify as a Key Worker and would like your child to continue to attend school, then please let us know immediately.

Phone: 0113 248 9539


If you’re a Key Worker, and you or any member of your family are currently self-isolating, we still need to know so that we can plan a place for your child once the isolation period is up. We will then contact you to bring your child to school if you fit the relevant criteria published by the Government.

Free school meals

If your child is entitled to a free school meal, you can collect a meal from school. Please come to the hall door between 10.30 am to 11.30 am to collect your lunch. In line with the government’s advice, you must maintain 2m distance from other families and from staff.
