Covid-19 updates

To help minimise the risk of spreading Covid-19 and keep our children and staff safe, please wear a mask or face covering whilst on the school grounds. This is something that all schools in Leicestershire have been asked to request parents/carers to do . We are fortunate to have had no confirmed cases of Covid-19 so far and we want it to remain that way for as long as possible.

Please also try to uphold 2m distance when talking to the class teacher or a member of staff. We appreciate your support in this matter.

For KS2 families, please enter via the school car park but leave via Millennium Way as this avoids a bottle-neck at the car park gate. Thanks.

Email: covid19@jwps.uk if you have any questions or want to report a confirmed case in your family.



When parking your car, please show due consideration to the safety of our school community. This means parking your car safely in a way that:

  • Ensures Mr Rob can be seen and see oncoming traffic,
  • Does not cross white or yellow traffic markings (even if the driver is present and the engine is idling),
  • Leaves driveways of local residents clear,
  • Does not cause pedestrians (especially children walking to school alone) to step on to the road to get past,
  • please also be aware of pedestrians when opening your car doors as there have been a few near misses recently and we want to avoid any injuries.
