Update 14th December 2020
From today, Monday 14 December, Government has changed the period of self-isolating for 10 days instead of the 14 days previously advised. The change to the isolation period for contacts will apply to all those who are currently self-isolating including those who commenced self-isolation before Monday. Self-isolation periods will begin on the day after exposure, a test or the start of symptoms.
The NHS Test and Trace service will tell people to self-isolate for 10 days instead of 14 days from Today, Monday 14th December 2020. Due to the time taken to test technical changes and release updates through the app store, the NHS COVID-19 app will tell close contacts to isolate for 10 days instead of 14 days from Thursday 17 December.
Now we are out of the 2nd lockdown period we will be resuming educational visits to venue’s in other Tier 2 areas, these will cease if we are placed into Tier 3 restrictions.
Pupil’s will continue to require masks when using transport and have been encouraged to do so in communal areas in schools outside of their bubbles / classroom

17th September 2020
Following a very positive start to the new term, we have had to make the decision to temporarily close our school building for three days. This is so it can be deep cleaned, following confirmation of two positive cases of coronavirus amongst our staff group.
All pupils will have access to remote learning, as stated in our offer, and our staff will remain in contact with them and parents/carers and guardians.
This has not been an easy decision to make, but we take the health and welfare of our pupils and staff very seriously and want our school community to be as safe as possible.
We have followed the current government guidance and acted on our own school risk assessments. We are working closely with Public Health England and Warrington Borough Council to ensure we are doing all we can to reduce the risk of the virus spreading and we are following the national guidance around self isolation and testing.
We will keep parents, carers and guardians informed and updated as and when we have any news or relevant information to share.
Mrs J Barlow
