Covid-19 – Working at Home

This page is being regularly updated.

Until further notice, school is closed following a decision from the government. This is part of the national response to the Covid-19 virus. Please do not bring your child to school. As a last resort, school is providing childcare to children of key workers only. Please contact school for more information.

School children are expected to complete school work at home. English, Maths and either Science or Topic work should be completed every day. We also expect children to carry on with their normal home activities such as reading, basic skills, spellings and times tables.

Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher during the closure. Click here for a list of staff email addresses.

The education resource website, Twinkl, has provided a free log in for parents to use during this time.
