COVID in School – If your child displays symptoms of COVID, the guidance remains the same, keep them at home and book a PCR test.


Reporting Sickness – If your child is absent from school due to any illness please contact the school office before the start of the school day.  The school office is open from 8:45 a.m. onwards.  If you wish to contact us before this time please send an email to stating your child’s name, class teacher and reason for absence.  If the absence is COVID related it must be stated in the email for attendance purposes.  If a child is absent for PCR testing, we would ask that an email of the test result is forwarded to the school at your earliest convenience.  Thank you.

Google Classroom – It is very important that all children register on Google Classroom using their own C2K account and the class code issued.  All accounts that are not children’s C2K accounts will be removed by the class teacher.  If you have misplaced log in details, contact the school and they will be reissued.
