COVID-19 and School Closure

Following the Government’s announcement regarding the closure of schools for all children with the exception of “vulnerable” children and the children of key sector workers, Loddiswell Primary School is partially closed. Please only send your child to school if you have absolutely no alternative option for childcare as the safest place for them is at home.

Our opening times for vulnerable and the children of key sector workers are 9.00am – 3.30pm

If your child does attend school they will need to bring a packed lunch to school as there will be no catering service on site.
