Provision for Pupils of Key Workers only (children highlighted in the government key workers document) from Friday 27th March and during the Easter holidays will be at Shute Primary School – 01297 33348 or email

The government are advising that, “If it is at all possible for children to be at home they should be”.  Using the school as a care provider should be the last option and only if you cannot keep your child safe at home.  The aim of closing schools is to minimise social interaction and to stop the spread of the virus.
