Covid-19 – Working at Home
This page is being regularly updated.
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.
From 1st June, school remains closed to all pupils apart from the children of Key Workers. We are welcoming back Y6 pupils only on 8th June. More information to follow. Please see this letter from Middlesbrough Council regarding the reopening of schools.
School children are expected to complete school work at home. English, Maths and either Science or Topic work should be completed every day. Using resources from Twinkl, White Rose and BBC Bitesize will ensure that your children have a good coverage of their curriculum. We also expect children to carry on with their normal home activities such as reading and times tables. Further guidance on work to complete is given below.
Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher during the closure. Click here for a list of staff email addresses.
