School closure - further information

As you will be aware, Coronavirus is a rapidly changing situation and we have been working with the Department for Education, Public Health England and Knowsley Council to plan for such a pandemic.


As per the Prime Minister’s announcement yesterday we have been directed to close schools for most children. We are prepared and ready to respond to this challenge.


We are writing to inform you that school will close on Friday 20th March (tomorrow) at 3.15 pm and remain closed until further notice. Parents should check the school website for updates which will be posted regularly.


Pupils will be provided with work packs that will be sent home today. Additional work will be available via the school website. Teachers will update this regularly.

If your child is absent from school, you may collect work packs from the Junior Hall between 2 pm and 3.30 pm on Friday. If you are unable to collect work packs, please inform the school office.

As advised by the government, we will do all we can to stay open from Monday 23rd March for the following groups:

  • children with an EHCP or a social worker – we will contact you separately


  • children of key workers (e.g. NHS staff, police, others in frontline services)

Please contact school if you are a key worker and require this provision. School may ask you for further information about your role. School will also ask you for further detail about your requirements – eg. if you need the place all week for example.


We encourage you and your children to continue to follow Public Health England advice on keeping yourselves safe.  Updated information can be found here:


Pupils who are eligible for free school meals will have their lunches provided for them.  Further information about this will be communicated to these families in due course.


Energy difficulties - The Government has announced that energy suppliers won’t shut people off and that families should contact their supplier in the first instance.
