Covid-19 / Home Learning 2020

Whilst our school is closed due to Covid-19, please use this page to support you and your child's home learning. We will be regularly updating this page with useful information.

Summer Support and Transition

We continue to welcome our children back to school. All children have been offered a part-time place in school for the last two weeks of this half term. This is to help transition across all year groups and to support children's wellbeing. In case parents want additional support over the summer holidays, all class teachers have added 'basic skills' letters  to their class Seesaw activities. These have been written by your child's current teacher and your child's next teacher and highlight key areas of the curriculum that you may wish to work on over the next few weeks in preparation for September. There is no expectation that you do this work with your child, but it is there if you want it.

In addition, should you want more summer work to recap the current year's objectives, please click here to access free maths and English learning booklets.
