Next week is half term. 

All lessons for pupils are online via Google Classroom and live streaming instead of in person because there are currently 29 staff members off school. 

Miss Hartley, head teacher, confirmed that the school is closed for the remainder of this week prior to the half term break next week.

The school has had two staff and three boys test positive for Covid-19, meaning a "significant number" of staff now have to isolate for 14 days.
