COVID-19

Updated 22 February 2021

This page contains information for current families at St Chris about the School’s ongoing response to COVID-19.

We will update it as information changes and as our response to external developments evolves. Any major updates will also be emailed to parents, but this page will enable you to see everything in one place, so please bookmark it to refer to.


Return to School – March 2021

On Monday 22 February the Prime Minister confirmed that all pupils will return to on site learning from Monday 8 March 2021.

We are awaiting the guidance on how this will happen in terms of testing, bubbles, movement and positive notifications.  As soon as we receive the directives we will work swiftly and carefully in order to explain the plans moving forward.

We’re really looking forward to seeing everyone in person!
