School Closure - COVID19

19th March 2020

It is with a very heavy heart that we notify you Walbottle Village will close its doors until further notice on Friday 20th March 2020.


We are offering critically needed childcare for children of key workers at Beech Hill Primary where staff from both schools will be based. As per government guidelines, if children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading in school.

I want to thank all of our families for their overwhelming support over the last couple of weeks and for helping us retain some sense of normality.

I also want to thank my incredible staff team who have made and who will continue to make every effort to come into work to educate and care for our children.

There are challenging and uncertain times ahead but we belong to a brilliant community and will support each other through this. The teachers will work hard to keep our school website up to date with tasks for all children and of course we will notify you of any new developments through our school facebook page and website.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
Alison Oliver (Head Teacher) & Dame Stephenson (CEO Valour MAT)
