Phoenix Infant Academy

coronavirus updates

We will be posting regular updates from both the school and Public Health England here, when required. 

Please continue to check this page on a DAILY basis. 



Notice to all parents/carers

Currently, schools have been closed in order to reduce social contact to a minimum.  In short, the fewer children and staff making the journey to school and being together in school, the lower the risk that the virus will spread, infect vulnerable people and overwhelm the NHS. The offer of care for the children of key workers and the most vulnerable has been made to keep the most essential services running where those key workers have no other option but to send their child(ren) into school.  Currently, Phoenix Infant Academy does not have any families who require this care/support for their children and is therefore closed. However, we are committed to helping our community including, during the school holidays, and therefore this may change if our families' circumstances change.

If your circumstances change at any point and you require your child(ren) to be cared for, please do get in touch straight away by emailing us at with the subject heading: SUPPORT NEEDED. Please rest assured that this is checked on a daily basis and we will endeavour to contact you within 1 working day.



You should have received an email and text message today requesting that you inform us if you are a key worker. Please do email post@phoenixinfants or telephone 01753 52188 by 12pm tomorrow (Friday) at the latest. We will be in touch with all key worker families before the end of day tomorrow (Friday).


School remains open tomorrow and Friday. From Monday March 23rd, school will be closed until further notice except to children of key workers and those most vulnerable. More information to follow tomorrow (19.3.20).

After School Clubs have now been cancelled. We will cover internally for today, but from tomorrow, your children must be collected at 3:15pm.

Breakfast Club and Friday Enrichment Clubs will be running as normal until end of day Friday.

Thank you to our friends at Claycots School, Slough for the comprehensive list of organisations that may be able to offer help should you need it. This can be found below.
