As a school we must remain vigilant to this recent outbreak. There is naturally a lot of anxiety from parents about this virus and we are receiving information daily from the DFE. Greenholm School remains open as we have been informed that the risk to children is minimal. If there are any changes to this, be assured that we will inform you as soon as we know. We have risk assessments in place and all staff are fully briefed on the matter.

Children are washing their hands regularly and doing everything they need to keep themselves healthy. Greenholm's cleaning team are being especially vigilant as are other members of staff ensuring that all surfaces and door handles are wiped regularly.
