School recognise that this is a highly anxious time for parents, and we thank you for your patience, understanding and reasonable approach to the current situation.

What’s the current situation?

Further to the Secretary of State's announcement yesterday evening, schools as providers of education will be closed 'for the foreseeable future’. Canon Burrows will 'close' at 3.10pm on Friday 20th March. We will ensure that work is set for your children during the time the school is closed, this will be available on the ‘home learning’ page of the school website, and we will ensure that we keep in regular contact with you via messages on the website, email and twitter.


The latest government advice is:

Self-isolation measures: anyone with symptoms is now being urged to self-isolate for 14 days, rather than 7 days as it was before.

Anyone who lives with someone with symptoms should also self-isolate for 14 days.

Pupils should attend unless they feel unwell – if your child has any of the following symptoms they should remain at home for 14 days and the whole family should isolate

  • a new, continuous cough and/or

  • a temperature

If your child is unwell, report this as you would normally by calling the school office on 0161 330 4755.

To further reduce the risk to the children, staff and the community, School have taken the decision to cancel all class, family and sharing assemblies as well as Parent’s Evening next week. This means Miss Gaskell’s class assembly on Friday 20th March will be postponed

Following guidance from the Diocese of Manchester the school Eucharist Service on 1st April at Christ Church and Parent’s Evening on Wednesday March 25th and Thursday March 26th have been cancelled.

We’ll keep you up to date with any changes to the current situation, however school is only getting information at the same time as the general public so please be patient with us.
