Update- * Please note that due to Covid 19 our school will be closed for the foreseeable future. Please have a look at our Home Learning page for more information.*
As you are aware, the government’s guidance on the coronavirus has changed from the ‘contain’ phase to one of delaying the spread of the virus, including instructions that if a family member is self-isolating because of a new continuous cough or high temperature, in line with the NHS ‘Stay at Home’ guidance (www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-advice/) they should self-isolate together for 14 days. As a result of this and due to high levels of staff absence, we are unable to safely open and operate the school. Therefore, after consulting with the Local Authority, I have today reluctantly taken the decision that as from 3.15pm today, 18th March 2020, Icknield Primary School will be closed and will cease usual operations until further notice.
