In a letter to parents and caregivers, headteacher Annalisa Howarth said: “Despite our rigorous, stringent and strict measures in place, we have unfortunately had two confirmed cases of Covid-19 within school (in separate Bubbles).

“As a result, on Friday I had to ‘close’ the Year 2 Bubble until Monday 28 September 2020.

“Today I have had to close the Reception, Year 5 and the Year 6 Bubbles. All until Wednesday 30 September 2020.”
