Coronavirus Latest Advice

We will ensure we keep our school community updated on the government’s response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) so that we can all stay as safe as possible.

The following information has been received:

Department for Education Coronavirus helpline

A new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education has been set up. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

Phone: 0800 046 8687


Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)


The government has stated that,

  • No school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless directed to do so by Public Health England.


Please find below the latest advice for educational settings. These will be updated whenever changes or updates occur so that parents and carers have the most up to date information that is guiding the school response to this unprecedented situation. 

The World Health Organisation have developed some Parenting Advice posters to support parents during this unprecedented time which I have added below. I have also added an information poster which has just been released here in the UK regarding other illnesses in children and using emergency services as you would usually do.

Our Critical Worker Classrooms

Below are the classrooms that our critical worker children will be working in.  They look a little different to usual, so it may help prepare your child by showing them what their classrooms will look like.


The Reception critical worker children will be working in one area of the EYFS unit. 

The Year 1 critical worker children will be working in the Class 1/2 classroom.

The Circle bubble will be working in the Class 3 classroom.

The Square bubble will be working in the Class 4 classroom.

On Friday 3rd April P.C. Ryan Scott was delighted to receive our donation of this weeks surplus packed lunches. P.C. Scott works in partnership with Safer Leeds and the food parcels will be delivered to vulnerable children, young people and families living in the South of Leeds.
