School is currently open to pupils in all year groups but the Delta variant of COVID-19 is becoming more prevalent in the city. With this in mind, please remember to wear a face covering when on the school site - this will help to keep school open for as many children as possible. When arriving and departing, please follow the one-way system and keep a distance from other families. If you or any member of your family experience COVID-19 symptoms please isolate and book a test.
