Parent Information

Dear Parents and carers

School is currently closed in order to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.  Some children of key workers will remain in school next week (7th-10th April).  Please do not send your child into school unless you have been asked to do so.

We know that it is a difficult time for everyone in our community but I also have every faith that the town will support each other brilliantly.  Already many individuals and groups have come forward to support those that will need it and we are all very grateful and proud of them.  

Moving forward, you will have many questions I am sure.  I will post regular updates below and via our school communication channels and we will get the information you need to you as soon as we have it.  I will post updates, including information about Free School Meals, in the blog at the bottom of this page.  You can direct questions to the following email address:

Please visit the Devon Schools Covid 19 website page


This has now been set up and provides key messages and information for schools and parents on the Covid 19 situation.     FAQs will be added in due course.

Key information available includes:

  • school closures,

  • what this means for schools and parents in Devon

  • Should I send my child to school

  • DfE coronavirus helpline

  • School resources and information on key workers and messages for parents

Please read the letter below as to how you can support your child with home learning - this will be published to pupil page on the website.  

We look forward to seeing you all as soon as possible and take great care of yourselves.

Mr Le Bredonchel
