“Please do not bring them to the school gate, even if their siblings return to school.”

Principal Jose Lewis said: “The decision to close the school was made to support the well-being of students and staff, as we always have, and to do our part to control the spread in the community. local. We must all work to achieve this goal at this difficult time.

“Our parents and governors have been wonderful and have said they support our early action. Teachers have worked tirelessly to minimize the effect of the closure on students’ academic progress.

“We have taken steps to make the school as safe as possible, which will give parents the confidence to send their children away when we reopen.
