We have reviewed our arrangements and Covid risk assessments for Open Evening 2021 and ask all visitors to please read the following details prior to arriving at Mount Carmel.

  • We have issued a suggested staggered arrival time based on your child's primary school (see the table below)
  • Please be assured we will not turn anyone away if they can't make the time suggested
  • We will have sanitising stations on entry and all around school
  • We suggest visitors over the age of 12 wear a face covering and take a lateral flow test prior to the visit
  • Anyone displaying Covid symptoms are asked not to attend
  • Our Headteacher presentation will be recorded and played on screens around school and also uploaded to our website and social media. This will avoid any large gatherings of people in the school hall

Thank you for your assistance with this and please get in touch with any concerns or queries.



We encourage families to visit us during a normal school day to see us ‘in action’. To make an appointment for a personal tour call 01254 233458.
