Dear Parent,


Northcott School is currently monitoring the situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the advice given by the Department for Education and Public Health England. As a precaution, we have cancelled all visits off site and visitors onto to our site.

We are promoting regular and extended hand washing as per Public Health England and NHS guidance, staff regularly remind pupils to wash hands throughout the day.

At this moment in time, the guidance from the Department for Education and Public Health England is for schools to stay open. If we need to make a closure announcement, we will do so via our Twitter page, website and text2parents service. In the event that the school will need to remain closed, we will update you regularly via the text2parents system.

Therefore, please ensure that you have informed the main office of any changes to contact details.

Please be reassured that we are doing everything we can to safeguard our pupils and follow all guidance published.


Thank you for your continued support.

Yours Sincerely,


Miss K Johnson

Head Teacher
