    Terrorist Incident

    The appalling attack at the Manchester Arena last night is currently being treated as a suspected terrorist incident. All our thoughts are with the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones or been injured or traumatised. The police, hospitals, Council and emergency services are doing all they can to support them. As a City we will remain strong and it is more important than ever that our communities continue to support each other.

     Our school leadership team will continue to ensure the safety of our children and security of our school building, and will remain vigilant at all times. 


    We appreciate these terrible events will be distressing for your children and the school community. We will remain open as usual and we appreciate your support in keeping the day as calm and normal as possible for the children. We have access to Educational Psychology Services should anybody require this. 

    There is an increased number of police, including armed patrols out in communities following yesterday's incident. These are general patrols aimed at providing community reassurance and there is no need to be alarmed.

    There is no intelligence relating to a threat to schools and GMP are not advising any schools to close.
