Covid-19 Parent Letters and Notices

We have created a Covid page on the website where parents and students can refer to our risk assessment document and other new and important announcements or information from a host of providers such as the department for education or public health England. All interested parties should be able to find any information they require on vaccines, isolation and attendance as well as other important information. We will update the guidance as soon as we get new information and communicate this to parents.
