Following the Prime Minister's announcement on Monday 4th January, as part of the current Lockdown arrangements in England, our school is closed until February half term at the earliest.  Please see below for further information:

  • Children of critical workers and vulnerable pupils can be booked into our school bubbles, if they cannot be cared for at home.  If you need to book a place, please call or email the school - - by 3.00 p.m. on Thursday each week, to be able to book slots for the following week. 
  • The school day for those sessions is 9.00 a.m. - 3.00 p.m.  Gates open 8.55 - 9.10 a.m. and 2.55 - 3.10 p.m.  Our pre-school remains open.
  • Learning will take place remotely with lessons posted on our website.  Please visit the Classes pages and choose 'Remote Learning' for each year group.  We will soon be offering 'live' lessons delivered by staff - further information to follow soon.
  • Children at school in bubbles will follow the same remote learning activities as those at home, as well as live lessons.
  • Please continue to check your school emails for further updates. 


We continue to follow all of the latest COVID guidance and our systems of cleaning the school throughout the day, as well as ensuring there is plenty of hand washing at key times, continue to operate well.

What to do if your child is unwell
The information below will help parents and carers know what action needs to be taken if a child becomes unwell. 
Please click on the link below to view these posters.

Dear Parents and Carers,

If you haven't already completed the survey below, please could you do so by midday on Friday 8th January.

It is really important for the school to gain a comprehensive grasp of which households across all years (Pre-School, Reception and Years 1 to 6) can access remote learning and which cannot. This information will allow staff to tailor remote learning even more appropriately for our children. Please complete the attached survey for each child in your household.

Kind regards, Shirley School Office
