26/03/2021 – Well done to everyone for making such a calm and successful return to being all together in school over the past few weeks. Special thanks to parents and carers who have kept us updated regarding Covid test results and isolation and who have encouraged all our children to return to school from 8th March.
Many thanks to all who contributed to our “own clothes day” fundraiser for Comic Relief. The total raised was £104, which is excellent.
After the holiday, pupils and staff will continue to work in bubbles and transport arrangements. The modified timetable will remain the same. Pupils must continue to attend school in uniform, except on PE days when they must attend in appropriate clothing to allow them take part in physical activities i.e. plain t-shirt or sweatshirt and joggers (not fashion items or football kit please).

As always, can we remind all parents and carers to be vigilant regarding their child’s access to social media, in all its forms, over the holiday. Further information and support is available on the E-safety section of our website Parents page and on our Twitter feed.

Face coverings in schools – Latest public health instructions
15/09/2020 – Please note the latest Public Health Liverpool instructions received by Mrs Piercy today regarding face coverings in schools:
Essential use of face coverings
Dear Head teacher, levels of COVID-19 in Liverpool are high and increasing every day – we need to take urgent action.
It is now essential that parents and carers in Liverpool wear face coverings when collecting and dropping off their children at school. All school staff should role model best practice by also wearing a face covering if supervising during collection or drop off. Those who refuse or cannot wear face coverings should maintain social distancing of at least 2m from children and other parents/ carers.
We thank you in advance for ensuring greater levels of safety in your school and our communities.
Matthew Ashton (Director of Public Health Liverpool City Council)
Thank you in advance for helping to keep our community safe and our school open.
