THE SCHOOL IS CLOSED

We have now been instructed to close the school to almost all children  until further notice.

As advised by the government, we will do all we can to stay open for the children of key workers (e.g. NHS staff, police, others in frontline services) and children with certain needs.

Please note that this is a national closure – as you may have heard in the news – so while it is a challenging situation, we are not alone. We’ll re-open fully as soon as we can and will let you know when this is by Parentmail and the school’s website.

And remember: if you or your child feels ill and you want to know what to do next, please use NHS 111 online.

I would like to reassure you that we have regular contact with West Sussex County Council and Public Health England who are ensuring we have the most up-to-date advice and information. 

The Department for Education has established a coronavirus telephone helpline 0800 0468687, which is operational 0800-1800 Monday-Friday to answer your queries. You can also email DfE.coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk
