Whole School Blog

Hello everyone, 

I hope you’ve all had a great week and have been enjoying the sunshine! Please do remember to send in sun cream, hats and long sleeved shirts to help us to keep your child safe. We do need you to provide us with consent to apply sun cream in school. 

Solar Eclipse 

Deaf students took the opportunity to observe the annular eclipse this week.  We were really lucky and were able to safely project clear images of the eclipse onto card. They even had a signing Physics teacher (me) to show them how to get the best results… 

COVID-19 update 


We’ve had no confirmed cases in school this week, however, we have an agency worker and one student identified as close contacts of positive cases outside of school.
