COVID 19 Policy (2019 - 2020)



Update: 27th March 2020

Welcome to the home learning section of the school website. 

Our goal with this section of the Web Site is to provide parents and children with learning that can be done at home during the school closure. Over the last week and following your helpful feedback, we will be changing the things that we do slightly. We hope that by doing this, tasks at home will become more manageable.

From next week our aim will be to:

  • Only produce 3-4 English and Maths learning activities a week. These will be as PowerPoints and also PDFs which are downloadable on any device from the school WebSite. 
  • Add to the Pick N' Mix activities. These activities are more open ended and can be as challenging as you want them to be.
  • Include some Basic Life Skills suggestions that would be useful to life beyond school.

If you have problems downloading or accessing the school website, please either e-mail your child's class teacher who may be able to send you the information in another way or contact the school office who will provide you with paper copies.

Mrs Warburton has put together some helpful advice for the parents of children who find some aspects of learning hard. Please click on these "Top Tips", and see if they help with home learning.

And finally......

The learning we have posted on our Website has been put there if you need it. This is a strange situation nationally and although we want the children to continue learning, the most important thing, in these first few weeks, is to ensure your child feels and is kept safe and is not worried by the things around them.  If things are hard in your home and these learning activities are causing too much stress don't worry about them. Do what you are able to do.
