Dear Parents and Carers,

Further to this evening’s announcement by the Prime Minister, our school will now be closed tomorrow to ALL pupils.

Teachers will spend tomorrow putting ‘online learning’ into place as well as organising suitable provision for our Key Worker and Vulnerable children.

We would like to thank you all for your patience and we will be in touch soon with further details about your child’s learning.

Dear Parents and carers, 

We hope that everyone is enjoying the summer break and some of the lovely weather we are having. 

September is fast approaching and we are working hard to get ready to open our doors to all children once again; we cannot wait to welcome you all back. 

Below is our whole school ‘risk assessment’ which details all the measures we are putting into place as we welcome everyone back to school. 

See you all soon.

Home Learning Challenge

Home Learning Challenge

To help motivate your children for the last few weeks of term we have set up a home learning challenge. This is totally optional but we thought it might be useful for some of you. Here’s how it works:

  • Decide on daily home learning challenges for your child, this could be a certain number of tasks or an amount of time e.g. for a Reception child it could be to do the daily phonics lesson and one other task , or for an older child it could be to do 2 hours of home learning.
  • Use the attached reward chart to add smiley faces for each home learning challenge your child completes. There are six boxes for each day but you might not need all of these if you decided on a smaller number of daily challenges. If you decide on a time challenge (e.g. two hours per day) they could get a smiley face for each half hour of home learning successfully completed.
  •  If your child completes their task for the week upload a photo of the completed chart onto Tapestry and they will receive a certificate and a small reward in the post.
  • If your child completes a chart for the rest of term (3 weeks) they will receive a prize at the end.
