Home Learning Resources - added 22.01.21
If you require any resources to support your child working at home, we have a trolley outside the front of the school with jotters (plain, lined and squared), pencils, rubbers and sharpeners. Please come any time between 9am and 3pm and take what yout require (please only take what you need so there is enough for everyone). There is no need to contact the school, just come along. Please note that the trolley will be outside everyday unless their is heavy rain or other weather that would ruin the resources.

Home Learning Guidance - added 12.11.20
Please check school bags tonight for two very important letters; a Home Learning Grid and Home Learning Guidance for Parents and Carers. The Home Learning Grid provides all of the information you will need to support your child's learning at home. We wanted parents and carers to have all of this information in one place. Please keep this information safe and update it with any changes to passwords. The Home Learning Guidance for Parents and Carers outlines every possible home learning scenario we may come across this session. The aim of the leaflet is to ensure we have shared expectations of each of these. Please click here to view the guidance leaflet. Please note: We are working on the assumption that we will remain fully 'open for business' - we just want to be planned and prepared for whatever may come our way over the course of the year.
