Dear Parents / Carers,


Please find a message from the Authority below.

A message to parents 27-03-20 from Authority

We continue to remain closed to all but a very small number of students who’s families are key workers until the end of term. All families of these students have all been contacted. This is due to the guidance above alongside health & safety / staffing levels.

I want to thank all parents / carers for their flexibility and understanding while we have been arranging this, I appreciate what an anxious time it is for us all.

Again, huge thanks for all those working in school in exceptionally difficult circumstances. Hopefully you are all receiving messages from class teachers and please let us know how you are doing with activities on the website.

SEN transport are aware of the students who will be in school and those who usually have transport will be catered for (0161 474 2504 for information).

We will continue to update this site and inform parents via Class Dojo.

Stay safe and look after yourselves
