We have followed the national guidance and have identified that our year 4 bubble must stay at home and self-isolate until Friday 23rd October 2020 and our year 1 bubble must stay at home and self isolate until Tuesday 27th October 2020.

School remains open to all other year groups and your child should continue to attend as normal if they remain well.
St. Ambrose are following govenment guidance and have implemented many measures within school for both pupils and staff to follow ensuring we can stay as Covid-19 secure as possible. One of the measures we have in place is staggered start and end times of the school day. Please ensure you are aware of these times for your child's year group as we will not be accepting children that are late in to school. The times can be viewed by clicking here.
