Update - School Closure

Re: Coronavirus School closures


Following yesterday’s announcement from the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson and the Secretary of State for Education Gavin Williamson, Cheadle Catholic Schools will close to the majority of students from Friday 20th March at 3.25pm. Both schools  will remain closed until further notice. These are unprecedented events over which our schools have no control. 


As detailed in the Prime Minister’s speech those students whose parents/carers are key workers or any students with an EHCP will be able to arrive at school no earlier than 8.55am. School will finish as normal at 3.25pm. Unfortunately school buses will not be running and breakfast/ after schools clubs will not take place.


Government Definition of a Key Worker:


We are fully committed to being as supportive as possible to our families, and we also need to ensure that we are able to safely supervise any children in school. 

To help us to identify which children will be eligible and would like a school place, please complete the proforma below and email it back to school at: 


As the situation continues to unfold information will be sent via text and email. For your information please see the following contact details:-

In order to support our students with their learning at home, staff will continue to upload resources on our website throughout the period of time that students are not in school.  Class teachers will also send a weekly email with additional work for pupils. Please do contact teachers directly if you would like to discuss any anything at all regarding school work.


We thank you for your patience and understanding at this difficult time.


Guidance for parents:



See you all in September!
