Thank you…

To all our amazing teachers who are juggling setting work online, marking work, as well as trying to care for their own children at home on lockdown… Thank you!

To the teachers (and TA’s & office staff) who are also covering the Key Worker care at school… Thank you!

To the cleaners who are cleaning and disinfecting our school… Thank you!

And last but by no means least, to all the parents and siblings who are supporting our pupils in their online education at home… Thank you!

Message from Mr Langford

All parents who identified as Key Worker families have now been contacted and provision organised at school for their children.  If you have not been contacted, then please do NOT bring your child to school on Monday.

The key guidance that we have all been given is that if your child can stay at home, they must stay at home.

We do not know how long this crisis will continue for but please keep checking the website and your emails to keep contact with your class teacher.  Work will continue to be posted via the school website for all children working from home.

Please stay safe during this period of closure, be mindful of Government advice, especially with respect to social distancing, and hope you all stay safe.

Mr Langford

FREE access to Twinkl resources and other websites you can use at home

As soon as possible, teachers will update the website with relevant work for pupils who are currently having to self-isolate at home.

In the meantime, a number of educational websites have either permanent or temporary free access to their resources to parents who are supporting their child’s learning at home.  Many of these have been recommended to us by the Home Schooling Community but are not necessarily used or endorsed by our school.

Some useful links:

Also, don’t forget to keep reading daily and sharing stories with those at home with you!
