On Wednesday 21st November we were inspected by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). They were very complimentary about our risk assessment and the way the environment was organised.

In case we have to isolate any groups, classes or year groups, we now have a remote learning policy which explains how we will continue to teach children.

We are very pleased that so far there have been no confirmed cases among either pupils or staff. We very much want to keep things that way. Please see our most recent Risk Assessment at the bottom of this section.

There is a new testing facility now available in South Gloucestershire (in Frenchay). Click on the link below for more details

 Our changes have been successful in reducing 'pinch points' and giving parents more space while they are waiting to pick children up. Please can parents play their part by keeping 2m apart from other parents. If you feel you cannot do this, you are strongly encouraged to wear a mask. Remember: 





We are making some adjustments to our start/end times in order to manage parent congestion on site, especially at the end of the day. Please can all parents read the following information carefully.

Information for visitors to the school

What is coronavirus?

A coronavirus is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China in January 2020.

The incubation period of COVID-19 is between 2 and 14 days. This means that if a person remains well 14 days after contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus, it is unlikely that they have been infected.

The following symptoms may develop in the 14 days after exposure to someone who has COVID-19 infection:

  • Persistent cough
  • loss of taste or sense of smell
  • high temperature

Generally, these infections can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease. There is no evidence that children are more affected than other age groups – very few cases have been reported in children.
